Our strategy focuses on selecting companies that are helping to tackle climate change. Companies are primarily selected based on the positive impact of their products and services (their “handprint”). However, additional ESG criteria are also incorporated into our analysis (the “footprint”). The portfolio predominantly includes companies in the areas of photovoltaics, wind power, hydroelectric power, efficient heat generation, thermal insulation, recycling, sustainable forestry, electromobility, efficient water consumption and public transport infrastructure. The index universe consists mainly of Western European and North American stocks with a focus on mid and large caps.
