Blackrock MSCI Global Impact ETF | SDG


SDG provides exposure to global stocks aiming to advance themes related to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, such as education or climate change. It targets companies with leading ESG business practices that also build their business around products and services that may drive positive change which helps investors increase exposure to sustainable themes in an equity portfolio.
Companies are explicitly deselected if more than 10% of sales are from alcohol, tobacco, or are involved in predatory lending. The index must contain at least 30 issuers, with an issuer cap of 4% and a sector cap of 20%. Constituent weight is based on the percent of income derived from the above-stated "impact sales," scaled by trailing 12-month revenues, and rebalanced annually. It seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of positive impact companies in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and that applies the business involvement screens like: alcohol, civilian firearms, controversial weapons, conventional weapons, nuclear weapons, predatory lending and tobacco.
