SSGA SPDR ETFs Europe launches suite of four Climate Paris Aligned broad equity ETFs, benchmarked to the MSCI Climate Paris Aligned Indexes. These ETFs are designed to allow investors to decarbonise their portfolios swiftly, effectively and efficiently, with minimal disruption. Climate change poses a significant, systemic risk to investment portfolios. These risks will continue to affect almost all segments and industries — not just the obvious polluters.
One of the key challenges for investors is to understand what it means to be aligned with the Paris Agreement. MSCI is a leader in climate data and these indexes can help investors implement net-zero strategies by aligning with a 1.5C scenario and address climate change in a holistic manner.
“These funds are an efficient, transparent vehicle to allow investors to tackle one of the largest challenges we face through an index exposure that will adapt and evolve to the Paris Agreement as economies re-align against the impacts of climate change. The funds will now allow investors to have an opportunity to play a role in reducing climate change through the decarbonisation of their portfolios.”Antoine Lesne, Head of SPDR ETF Strategy & Research EMEA
