The benefits of climate investing with ETFs
Aligned with the Paris Agreement
We have developed a full suite of cost-effective ETFs which allow you to ensure that your investment is aligned with the 1.5°C temperature rise objective of the 2015 Paris Agreement. Using the EU benchmark criteria we offer two levels of climate intensity for your portfolio.
CTB: Our Climate Transition Benchmark strategies provide an approach to low carbon investing that maintains a broad market exposure, with a 30% reduction in carbon intensity versus the universe, and an annual 7% decarbonisation.
- PAB: Our Paris Aligned Benchmark strategies go even further and have a 50% reduction in carbon intensity and additional exclusions of carbon intensive industries, they also have an annual 7% decarbonisation objective.
Pioneering passive climate investing
Amundi worked with a number of leading institutional investors to develop one of the first low carbon indices in 2014 and went on to launch an ETF tracking this index the following year.
€49bn of of our ETF AuM is managed to ESG & Climate indices.1
