Exclusion criteria

Exclusion criteria are used for negative screening, in which certifiers or investors exclude certain business sectors or activities that they do not want to hold in their portfolios. A wide range of criteria can be used (sustainability, religious, geographical, and more).

Often exclusion criteria are treated with a certain threshold, i.e. income from a controversial business field may not exceed a certain percentage threshold.
