Hang Seng Indexes Launches 4 New ESG Indexes Focusing on China A Shares

Hong Kong Exchange

29th January 2024 – Hang Seng Indexes Company (‘HSIL’) today launched below four new ESG Indexes focused on the A-share market, further expanding its diverse suite of ESG indexes for investors interested in sustainable investing.

  • Hang Seng Stock Connect China A 300 ESG Index (‘HSCAESG’) 
  • Hang Seng Stock Connect China A 300 ESG Enhanced Index (‘HSCAESE’) 
  • Hang Seng Stock Connect China A ESG Leaders Index (‘HSCAESL’) 
  • Hang Seng Stock Connect China A ESG 50 Index (‘HSCAE50’) 

In light of sustainability gaining momentum around the world, global corporates have placed increased emphasis on ESG and embraced ESG principles in their business practices to support the transition to a sustainable economy. International investors also increasingly recognise the pivotal significance of integrating ESG considerations into investment processes. 

With a focus on the A-share market, the new ESG index series is based on the existing Hang Seng Stock Connect China A 300 index (‘HSCA300’) which measures the overall performance of the 300 largest A-share companies eligible for Northbound trading under the Stock Connect schemes. This facilitates global investors’ investments into China’s A- share market while integrating ESG elements into their investment portfolios. 

The new HSCAESG and HSCAESE aim to combine the existing HSCA300 with ESG initiatives. Meanwhile, the other two new indexes, HSCAESL and HSCAE50, reflect the performance of the top 50 ESG leaders among the constituents of the HSCA300. The new ESG index series encompasses various ESG screening and integration strategies, supported by ESG data provided by international and local ESG data providers, to accommodate investors’ diverse sustainable investing needs.

These indexes are calculated and disseminated in real-time at two second intervals. Further details about new indexes, e.g. index universe, are provided in the appendices that accompany this release.
