Let's low-carbon together ✌️

New energy and new trends, in recent years, countries have advocated low-carbon plans to try not to damage the environment.  Environmental work has been going on and it is very challenging.  Singapore has almost reached its planned prelude, a very symbolic start.  Plus it's fair to say that Singapore excels at this at the moment.  So I think this is a project worth investing in, and I am very happy to join the subscription.  Below is the information and background I found about their plans.The Capital Index tracks 50 companies domiciled or located in Singapore and listed in Singapore and globally based on carbon intensity performance, offering investors the opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint of their portfolios
As SGX Group continues to improve its indexing capabilities in ESG, low carbon and climate risk, the launch of the index will further strengthen SGX’s sustainability index series
Singapore Exchange (SGX) and OCBC Bank jointly launched the iEdge-OCBC Singapore Low Carbon Select 50 Cap Index to track the 50 listed companies with the largest floating market capitalization and representing Singapore's real and financial economy.

The index was developed in collaboration with product experts from SGX and OCBC in line with their group's sustainability efforts.  As part of the SGX Sustainability Index product family, the index uses an exclusion method to exclude a large number of companies involved in the fossil fuel sector, while on a Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) Scope 1 and Scope 2 basis, based on per unit  GHG of income, maintaining the best choice in the industry.

The index, which consists of the top 50 listed companies by market capitalization, has a weight cap to ensure portfolio diversification.  Both environmental and carbon intensity data come from Sustainalytics, an investment research agency focused on environmental, social and corporate governance.

Goh Kin Yee, Managing Director and Head of Data, Connectivity and Indices at SGX, said: "The global green awakening has investors looking closely at companies' actual carbon emissions, not just green targets. Since SGX launched in 2016,  The Sustainability Index series, and the increased computing power for ESG indices following the acquisition of Scientific Beta in 2020, the market’s interest and awareness of our Sustainability Index has grown year by year. We are delighted to be working with OCBC to develop this purpose  A driven index to meet the strong market demand for portfolio decarbonization.”

Kok Siqiang, President, Consumer Financial Services, OCBC Bank said: "In recent years, the financial industry has gone through the development of sustainability as part of risk management, and now sees it as a viable business strategy and direction. We hope that our efforts will continue to expand in the future.  Resonates in wider society and has a green ripple effect among other financial practitioners and industry leaders. Given the focus and efforts of banks on sustainability, the index is a great example of how we can “practice what can be done”  Sustainability Philosophy”, how to work towards the promise of a low carbon economy. We will maintain this momentum to create and maintain a sustainable environment for future generations.”

The index’s portfolio decarbonization effect is measured by Weighted Average Carbon Intensity (WACI), a metric recommended by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) for the benefit of asset holders and managers  People and client reports.  Historically, the index's WACI has decreased by an average of 50% compared to the standard market cap-weighted index.
