TASE has published its first ESG questionnaire for the TASE-listed companies as a means to increase their ESG involvement and allow investors better access to ESG-related information, in line with international standards.
Only 70 of the TASE-listed companies publish full ESG reports, as compared to 90% of the companies included in the S&P-500 Index, according to the Israeli stock exchange. TASE has 3 ESG indices: TA-125 Fossil Free, Cleantech, and the veteran Maala Index. The objective is to launch additional ESG indices in the future in collaboration with an international index editor, which will allow the public to invest in companies that publish a full or condensed ESG report, based on the questionnaire.
