Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (SMIC) will be added to two ESG-focused indices in Hong Kong, despite being a sanctioned entity in the US, Bloomberg reports. SMIC will join the HSI ESG Enhanced Index and the HSI ESG Enhanced Select Index on June 13. Its shares rose as much as 1.3% on May 26 before erasing gains. In 1Q2022, SMIC’s earnings more than doubled y-o-y to US$447.2 million ($615.8 million).

For inclusion into the ESG (environmental, social and governance) indices, Hang Seng Indices screens stocks for their ESG risk ratings by data provider Sustainalytics, compliance with the United Nations Global Compact Principles and involvement with controversial products such as coal, tobacco and weapons.
