S&P Dow Jones Indices said Tuesday that it has launched environmental, social and governance versions of its main global equities indexes, with the company seeking to meet rising investor demand for such vehicles.

The unit of S&P Global Inc. (SPGI) has launched 22 new global indices that provide performance profiles in line with main S&P Dow Jones global indices while integrating environmental, social and governance criteria.

S&P Dow Jones Indices said the new series includes ESG versions of the S&P Global 1200, the S&P Europe 350 and the S&P Japan 500.

Some of S&P's regional and country-specific large and midcap benchmarks covering the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific will also have an ESG version, it said.

The indices will exclude tobacco, makers of certain weapons and companies not aligned with the United Nations Global Compact principles for responsible businesses. Companies with a poor UNGC score or a low S&P Dow Jones Indices ESG score will also be excluded, it said.

In April, S&P launched an ESG version of the S&P 500, the market-cap-weighted index of the 500-largest publicly traded companies in the U.S.
