Investing to stimulate decarbonization requires a combination of boldness, deep expertise and a proven track record in sustainable investing. In this publication, we explain how we go about investing in the winners of tomorrow to mitigate climate change. We also describe the process of creating the world’s first global fixed income strategy that is fully aligned with the Paris Agreement.

Find out how we helped create a new Paris-aligned Benchmark which sets the standard in the industry. This benchmark meets EU regulations and guides investors along a clearly defined decarbonization trajectory of 7% per year, to keep the global temperature rise well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5°C.
