The Church of England publishes on its website:

“‘FTSE TPI Climate Transition Index’ launched at London Stock Exchange with £600 million allocation from the Church of England Pensions Board. First Global Index that enables passive funds to capture company alignment to the Paris Climate Agreement. This new generation of Index has been developed by the Church of England Pensions Board, in collaboration with FTSE Russell and the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI).
