Comerica Listed on FTSE4Good Index for Eight Consecutive Years!
Comerica Director of Corporate Sustainability Scott Beckerman shares his thoughts on the award and what it means to Comerica:
Recently, Comerica learned that we were selected for inclusion in the FTSE4Good index series for our 8th consecutive year. But what is FTSE4Good and why is this such a big deal? Launched in 2001, the FTSE4Good Index Series is a series of benchmark and tradable stock indices for ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) investors and is designed to measure the performance of companies, like Comerica, that demonstrate strong ESG practices.
Financial products - as tools in the creation of index-tracking investments, financial instruments or fund products focused on responsible investment.
Research - to identify environmentally and socially responsible companies.
Reference - as a transparent and evolving global ESG standard against which companies can assess their progress and achievement.
Benchmarking - as a benchmark index to track the performance of responsible investment portfolios.
Our ongoing FTSE4Good inclusion is great example of doing well by doing good - - it’s also another reason why I’m optimistic, by working together, we can help ensure a more sustainable company and world.
