Impact Cubed Introduces ‘SmartESG Global Sustainability Index’

ESG data and analytics provider Impact Cubed has unveiled its SmartESG Global Sustainability Index’ at New York Climate Week. Created in collaboration with Solactive, a leading index provider, the index was developed with input from the pension plan of a major European financial institution.
