Paris Score

Positioning of the fund's Paris score compared to the fund universe. The letter describes, similar to a school grade, how well a fund is in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and climate scenarios. A stands for "very good", F for "insufficient". The planned production and thus CO2 efficiency in the most energy-intensive sectors is compared with the targets of climate scenarios for 2025. Companies from seven sectors are included in the calculation, which together are responsible for approximately 75% of global CO2 emissions. These include: power generation, coal, oil & gas, steel, cement, automotive and aviation. (Datasource: 2° Investing Iniative)

How the fund has developed The graph shows the historical development of the fund in relation to the Paris Score. If the fund has not invested or has invested too little in climate-relevant sectors, no score is assigned. The corresponding field at a point in time remains empty.
Alignment vs. Impact

This video explains why alignment is not the same as impact. While alignment might have an indirect impact on companies, there are other strategies with higher potential for impact, such as exercising voting rights, engaging directly with companies, or funding underfunded green projects or companies.

Paris-aligned funds could still be a good choice for retail investors who want to signal their support for climate-friendly companies for moral reasons, for example, or who believe that investing in climate-friendly companies promises better financial performance. We are working to provide more information and features for retail investors who want to maximize the impact potential of their investments.

ISS ESG Fund Rating
ESG Performance Score The rating of our partner ISS ESG ranges from 0 to 100, whereby 100 stands for "very good". The ISS ESG performance score represents an absolute ESG rating of the fund. For the calculation, the individual ratings of companies in the areas of environment, social affairs and corporate governance are combined and aggregated at fund level. The ISS ESG Performance Score therefore differs from the ISS ESG Fund Rating, as here stars are awarded relative to the Lipper Global Benchmark Class and thus a fund with a low ISS ESG Performance Score can also receive several stars in case of doubt. (Data source: ISS ESG)
Neither the ISS ESG performance score nor the fund rating can be used to infer the sustainability impact of the fund.
