The Leaders and Laggards model takes in six indicators and scores for each holding in your portfolio and classifies them as "LEADER", "ALLY", "UNDER PERFORMER", or "LAGGARD". The result is a color-scaled pie chart indicating the portfolio percentage in those four categories.

What Defines a Leader?

  1. Lowest Combined Scope 1 and 2 Carbon Emissions Intensity

  2. Lowest Scope 3 Carbon Emissions Intensity

  3. Complete Set of Reported Data All Scopes

  4. Highest Percent Renewable Energy Produced

  5. Highest Percent Renewable Energy Purchased

  6. Climate Solution Company

The greater the weight of the holdings in your portfolio that meet these criteria, the bigger the LEADERS segment of the portfolio will be.
