Our analysis shows how these funds stack up on specific climate-related metrics.
Just as governments around the world have spent the past year racing to get the coronavirus pandemic under control, we should be racing to contend with a similarly harmful global event: the threat of climate change. To be sure, a growing number of entities are doing their part. Regulators are ratcheting up efforts to combat climate change, and the investment community is offering more disclosure.
How can individual investors play a part in this effort? To start, they can familiarize themselves with climate-aware funds and fit them into their portfolios where appropriate. The funds we consider "climate-aware" represent a broad range of approaches to meeting various investor needs and preferences, such as the divestment from fossil fuels or participation in carbon solutions.
