Environmental product innovations for customers
We’ve made progress in offering products that support the development of new technologies for tackling climate change. In 2011 we launched two new funds:
The UK Equity Carbon Optimised Index Fund, which aims to reduce exposure to financial risk from the transition to a low carbon economy and rising energy costs.
The Global Environmental Enterprises Fund, which aims to provide capital growth primarily through investment in companies that are profiting from the global response to energy scarcity, pressures on natural resources and the shift to a lower carbon economy.
