UBP receives Climetrics award for environmental performance in emerging markets equity

UBP receives Climetrics award for environmental performance in emerging markets equity

CDP’s Climetrics has independently awarded our Positive Impact Emerging Equity strategy a distinction for environmental performance in emerging market equity.

At a time when the need to respond to sustainability challenges is of increasing importance, we are proud and delighted to share that our Positive Impact Emerging Equity strategy was named one of the top five emerging markets equity strategies for environmental performance in 2021 by CDP’s environmental fund rating Climetrics.

Backed by EU-funded not-for-profit charity CDP and ISS ESG, Climetrics helps investors to identify funds that invest in companies that are better at managing material issues related to climate change, water security and deforestation.

Climetrics therefore provides the transparency needed to shift capital towards those funds which are truly making a difference in the transition to a net-zero, nature-positive economy.

The top five funds in each of the global, European, emerging markets and US equities asset classes were picked from a total of 18,000 global funds valued at €15 trillion, or around 30% of the entire global fund market.

The Climetrics rating takes into account a fund’s portfolio of companies and their CDP scores for climate, water and deforestation as well as the asset manager’s environmental action and its investment policy.

Asset managers do not apply for the rating, but Climetrics independently scores any fund in the available universe, provided that a minimum of 60% of the portfolio’s assets under management have Climetrics company level scores.
