UBS Asset Management's climate engagement progress one year in
19 Jul 2019
Collaborating for a low-carbon world: UBS Asset Management's climate engagement progress one year in. We believe asset managers can play an important role in limiting the impact of climate change. That's why we developed our Climate Aware strategy, which:
It helps investors reduce their carbon risk exposure while maintaining a low tracking error and therefore without excessive risks or costs
It employs a unique proprietary forward-looking assessment of climate risks to tilt the portfolio to account for future climate risks
A dedicated engagement program that supports that strategy through a focus list of 50 companies that pose the great risks from a climate perspective
In order to proceed, you must confirm that you are a qualified investor based in Switzerland.
