This means decarbonization on an epic and unprecedented scale, and those at the forefront of it will be the winners.

To tap into the enormous investment potential that this brings, Robeco has created a pure-play Net Zero 2050 Climate Equities strategy that will seek the world’s leaders in decarbonization. Companies that have a clear decarbonization pathway to becoming net zero by 2050 will be eligible, along with those that can help others to achieve it.

To be able to better judge its long-term perfomance, the strategy will follow a bespoke benchmark, MSCI World Climate Change Index, rather than more generalist indices. All this and more is detailed in our new brochure highlighting what the strategy does, and how it could make a difference in the transition to a carbon neutral world.
