Solactive BBVA Resource Scarcity Index




The unmatched level of human development and prosperity achieved in the last few decades has run parallel to the overuse and erosion of natural resources. Today, these valuables appear more critical than ever to the needs of a global society increasingly concerned with the effects of the rapid population growth and climate change.

In this context, some firms are actively gearing their business to ensure the flow of these natural assets and to promote the maximum efficiency of their uses.

Solactive BBVA Resource Scarcity Index selects the companies harnessing nature’s most unscattered riches; easing water and food supply, improving forestry and mineral harvesting, managing urban physical space and providing the energy of tomorrow.
