The MSCI ESG Quality Score measures the ability of underlying holdings to manage key medium to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors.

ESG Leaders are companies with a best in class MSCI ESG Rating. ESG Laggards are companies with a worst in class MSCI ESG Rating. MSCI ESG Ratings is designed to identify ESG risks or opportunities that may not be captured through conventional financial analysis. Companies are rated on a AAA-CCC scale relative to the standards and performance of their industry peers, according to analysis of thousands of data points across 36 key ESG issues.

The percentage of the portfolio's market value exposed to companies flagged for one or more standard SRI exclusion factors (alcohol, civilian firearms, gambling, weapons, cluster bombs, landmines, nuclear power, GMOs, and tobacco).

The portfolio weighted average of each company’s percent of revenue generated by Sustainable Impact Solutions (goods and services that address at least one of the world’s social and environmental challenges), as defined by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
