Investing in the climate transition
The scale and urgency of change needed to ensure global greenhouse gas emissions are aligned with a 1.5 degrees Celsius pathway will impact every part of the global economy.

We seek to identify the winners from the transition across a broad range of sectors. First, we exclude more carbon-intensive fossil-fuel companies.

This approach can lead to the following investor benefits: profitable growth, resilience across market cycles and influencing positive outcomes.
