ESG product strategy

ESG product strategy

Deutsche Börse Group offers access to ESG products and marketplaces across all asset classes through its individual business areas.

ESG plays a vital role in Deutsche Börse Group’s pre-trading business area. Through targeted acquisitions, we have placed particular focus on the development of ESG products. Our index and analytics provider Qontigo works to expand its family of sustainability indices (STOXX®, DAX®). Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) provides ESG data, analytics and proxy voting services. From a central position in governance, ISS has become a major global ESG player with comprehensive ESG coverage and a specified rating system.

With its products and services, the business area trading & clearing also actively supports the transformation process towards a sustainable economy. In securities trading with Xetra® as the leading trading venue for ESG ETFs in Europe, in futures trading on Eurex with the broadest range of ESG derivatives globally, and with the European Energy Exchange (EEX) with emissions markets and guarantees of origin.

In post-trading, we take a targeted approach to promoting a variety of ESG product initiatives. In the wake of regulatory changes, sustainability issues in general are gaining traction, with a particular focus on aspects such as transparency and governance. As a market infrastructure, it is the ambition of Clearstream to play a vital role in this development.
