Responsibility is more than just a business deal

Sustainable indices

Deutsche Börse Group is strongly committed to neutrality, objectivity and transparency. We have therefore created several indices that focus the attention of capital market participants on companies with sustainable business practices. In 2015, Deutsche Börse Group expanded its range of sustainability indices to a total of 35. The set of sustainability criteria applied to determine which companies are included, is fully transparent. Based on data provided by Sustainalytics, a sustainability research and analysis specialist, this index model allows investors to fully understand how companies are rated in terms of their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance, and the importance of these factors.

Market Data

All capital market participants – private and institutional investors, asset managers, securities trading firms or fund management companies – make decisions based on market data, creating new information in turn. Deutsche Börse’s most prominent data products include real-time and historical price data of the Group trading systems Xetra® and Eurex® as well as a number of cooperation partners such as the Irish Stock Exchange. The data is disseminated directly via data feeds and indirectly through data vendors. The product range also comprises real-time data of the DAX® and STOXX® index families as well as the financial news services of the subsidiary MNI.

Market Data is a business area of Deutsche Börse Group.

Sustainable investor portal

As the central point of contact between different capital market participants, Deutsche Börse Group aims to promote market transparency. In particular, we aim to improve the availability of high-quality ESG information and to enable a better understanding of its relevance. To this end, Deutsche Börse’s online information portal for sustainable securities, which can be found at, provides market participants not only with financial data, but also with key sustainability figures as well as data provided by the Carbon Disclosure Project, an international non-profit initiative with a focus on climate change. In addition, Deutsche Börse Group offers investors and the broader public a comprehensive overview of the sustainability reporting activities of companies listed in Germany’s key indices DAX®, MDAX®, SDAX® and TecDAX®.
