Key Features of the Sustainable Climate Bond Strategy

Targets Paris-aligned Reductions in Carbon Emissions and Fossil Fuel Exposure. Avoids exposure to companies associated with high ESG controversies and commonly screened environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues (e.g. controversial weapons and UNGC violations).

Fund the Transition. Increases exposure to green bonds, adapting companies and bond issuers investing in the solutions needed to achieve net zero by 2050.

Keep the Returns. A systematic and transparent approach that delivers cost effective, diversified corporate bond exposure comparable to standard market-weighted corporate bond indices. Minimises active exposures that are not expected to outperform, such as currency, country, sector and industry exposure.
