  1. (a)

    the issuers of the constituent securities publish consistently and accurately their Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions;

  2. (b)

    the issuers of the constituent securities have reduced their GHG intensity or, where applicable, their absolute GHG emissions, including Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions, by an average of at least 7 % per annum for at least three consecutive years.

For the purposes of the first subparagraph, Scope 3 GHG emissions shall be construed in accordance with the phase-in implementation period set out in Article 5.
