Climate Action

Support companies taking urgent action to combat climate change, reduce pollution and minimize waste.

By investing in this Impact Area, you are supporting companies that provide affordable and clean energy, promote sustainable consumption and production, and protect ecosystems. You are steering clear of companies that emit excessive greenhouse gases, generate unnecessary waste and destroy ecosystems. Think organic products, windmills, and recycled and repurposed products.

Why It Matters

  • The global temperature is on track to exceed pre-industrial revolution levels by 1.5 degrees in 12 years which could pose unimaginable risks for humans and ecosystems worldwide. For example,  the world’s oceans will warm and ice melt will continue rising the sea level 26 inches by 2100. Far more ambitious funds and accelerated action are needed to slow down climate change.
  • With increased extreme weather patterns, drought, flooding, wildfires and other natural disasters, ecosystems must to be strengthened to better adapt to climate change.
  • Waste generation worldwide is accelerating and expected to double between 2010 and 2025 to 2.2 billion tons per year.
  • Recycling and reuse activities create jobs. 1.57 jobs are created for every 1,000 tons of materials recycled.

We evaluate companies based on how they are:

✔   Committing to climate goals and clean and renewable energy

✔   Reducing greenhouse gases across all operations

✔   Consuming and producing materials responsibly

✔   Developing sustainable agricultural practices

✔   Preserving and restoring ecosystems e.g., wetlands, mountains, drylands, forests and inland freshwater ecosystems

The results achieved in our simulations do not guarantee future investment results. The model performance information is based on the back-tested performance of hypothetical investments over the time periods indicated. “Back-testing” is a process of objectively simulating historical investment returns by applying a set of rules for buying and selling securities, and other assets, backward in time, testing those rules, and hypothetically investing in the securities and other assets that are chosen.
