The Global Listed Infrastructure Organization (GLIO), the representative body for the listed infrastructure asset class; GRESB, the ESG assessment and benchmark specialist; and Global Property Research (GPR) have launched the GLIO/GRESB ESG Index.
The index boosts the specialist offering of the parent GLIO Index, whose principles are to capture companies engaged in activities critical for the day-to-day functioning of society and the global economy. The index arrives at a key juncture when investors are increasingly aware of the importance of coherent climate and ESG goals.
To enter the GLIO index, companies must derive 75 percent of EBITDA from the following infrastructure groups: energy transportation and storage, communications infrastructure, transportation, renewable energy and regulated network utilities. The GLIO Index eligible infrastructure sectors are based on the broader industry standard EDHECInfra TICCS classification system.
