Calvert Social Index Construction
The Calvert Social Index is created by taking the 1,000 largest companies in the U.S., representing stocks listed on the NYSE and NASDAQ-AMEX (not including closed-end mutual funds, ADRs, REITS, and non-common shares); and ranks them in descending order based on their float-adjusted market capitalization.
Calvert’s Social Research Department analyzes each company in the base of 1,000 companies. A social audit is conducted in the following areas: governance and ethics; environment; workplace; product safety and impact; community relations; international operations and human rights; and indigenous peoples’ rights. The stocks that meet Calvert’s social criteria make up the Calvert Social Index.
