Vegan World Index®

Beyond Investing - background
  • The Vegan World Index® is the third vegan stock index created by Beyond Investing, following the launches of its US Vegan Climate Index in June 2018 and Europe Vegan Climate Index in May 2021.
  • In contrast to the Vegan Climate Indexes, which include all eligible stocks after application of its screening policies, the Vegan World Index first applies these screens and then proactively selects those companies whose activities contribute the most towards the achievement of a world free from animal exploitation.
  • This index maintains the zero animal exploitation principles of all our investment products and through its proactive selection provides a targeted thematic exposure to the accelerating plant-based and cruelty-free trend.
