How many companies are included in BSE-GREENEX?
Option 1 – 25 companies are included in BSE- GREENEX.
The BSE has launched the Green index called Greenex. This is the India’s first carbon-efficient live index. The index has been developed by the BSE in collaboration with IIM Ahemdabad. It is the second thematic index launched by BSE.
The selection of companies was on the basis of greenhouse emissions in the last four financial years from 2007-08 till 2010-11. The companies were tested in different combinations of carbon emission intensity. The BSE Greenex is the first step in creating a credible market-based response mechanism here, where both business houses and investors can rely on purely quantitative.
