This fund has adopted a single swinging price, this means that on any given day the single dealing price will be set at either bid, offer or somewhere in between, based on whether there was a net inflow or outflow into or out of the Fund. The past performance depicted in this factsheet is based on that dealing price and therefore may appear more volatile than it would otherwise be if we were to show the notional bid or offer performance, this is as a result of the daily swing.

    Sustainability-related Disclosures

    SFDR categorisation: Article 8Article 8: These funds promote environmental and/or social characteristics

    Environmental characteristics

    The Fund promotes the following environmental characteristics related to climate change:

    • reduction of greenhouse gas emissions intensity;
    • avoiding investments in certain fossil fuels; and
    • support of better practices in energy consumption (or usage).

    The Fund also promotes the following other environmental characteristics:

    • support of biodiversity and responsible land use.
    Social characteristics

    The Fund promotes the following social characteristics relating to social norms and standards:

    • human rights, labour rights and anti-corruption as set out in the principles of the UN Global Compact; and
    • avoiding the financing of controversial weapons.

    No reference benchmark has been designated for the purpose of attaining the environmental or social characteristics promoted by the Fund.

    Whilst environmental and social characteristics are promoted through the application of the sustainability-related investment strategy, investors are reminded that these environmental and social characteristics are not sustainable investment objectives.

    The Fund seeks to implement LGIM’s Responsible Investment Framework which aims to provide a consistent and systematic approach to exclusions, refined criteria and thresholds for setting environmental and social characteristics with a defined terminology and approach to support the implementation of such characteristics across the financial products managed by LGIM.

    The Responsible Investment Framework sets out the various types of investment strategies that LGIM’s financial products can follow and the responsible investing methodologies that explain how such investment strategies are defined and implemented.

    The Fund follows the following sustainability-related investment strategy:

    Clean Water Theme

    Hydrogen Economy Theme
    Healthcare Breakthrough Theme

    SDG Alignment
    Carbon Emissions Intensity Target

    Carbon emissions intensity aims to measure the volume of carbon emissions of investee companies and/or countries in relation to the revenue they generate. It is intended as an indication of how exposed a portfolio is to high or low carbon intensity companies. The Fund aims to maintain at lower weighted average carbon emissions intensity than the Benchmark Index.

    LGIM ESG Score
    LGIM's Future World Protection List

    The Future World Protection List (‘FWPL’) consists of companies that fail to meet minimum standards of globally accepted business practices on sustainability, or our minimum requirements on the carbon transition. There are three components to the list:

    • Companies that generate 20% or more of their revenues from involvement in mining and extraction of thermal coal, thermal-coal power generation and oil sands,
    • Companies that are in breach of one or more principles of the United Nation Global Compact for a continuous period of three years (36 months) or more (that are considered persistent violators), or
    • Companies involved in the manufacture and production of controversial weapons.

    The Fund excludes investments in companies on FWPL. The list is monitored on an on-going basis and updated semi-annually. In order to determine the companies included on the list, we use data from a number of external ESG data providers.

    Further information can be found at https://www.lgim.com/landg-assets/lgim/_document-library/capabilities/future-world-protection-list-public-methodology.pdf

    LGIM's Climate Impact Pledge

    The Fund excludes companies that fail to meet LGIM’s minimum requirements on climate change following engagement under Climate Impact Pledge (‘CIP’).

    • The CIP maps out a large number of companies worldwide, in climate-critical sectors against key indicators. Using quantitative and qualitative measures, such companies are assessed under a traffic light system drawing on independent data providers and our pioneering climate modelling.
    • Based on the results of engagement with these companies, LGIM uses escalating methods as necessary, which includes a period of engagement with companies and in the event that a company continues to make insufficient progress and fails to meet LGIM’s minimum standard expectation, may include sanction through voting and divestment.
    • The CIP is monitored on an on-going basis and updated annually. The ESG data that is used in connection with the CIP is sourced from third-party data providers.

    ESG Factor Evaluation

    LGIM considers ESG factors when making investment decisions on behalf of the Fund which include a number of environmental and social factors, for example relating to:

    • climate change
    • water and waste
    • supply chain
    • environmental policies and controls
    • labour rights, health and safety
    • bribery and corruption.

    The evaluation process starts with the identification of ESG factors using both top-down and bottom-up approaches. The top-down research analysis focuses on determining the resiliency of sectors on a macro level, while the bottom-up research process evaluates the ESG credentials of individual companies.

    LGIM has developed a proprietary research tool called Active ESG View which brings together granular quantitative and qualitative ESG inputs. Active ESG View primarily uses third-party data from multiple different vendors which includes hundreds of ESG metrics (including data on carbon emissions, water and waste, environmental policies and controls, labour, health and safety, bribery and corruption) spanning 64 specific sectors and/or sub-sectors from a number of ESG data providers.

    The quantitative inputs consist of two components:

    1. an ESG score calculated in Active ESG View which evaluates and scores issuers from an environmental, social and governance perspective, and
    2. a screening of investee companies in respect of their involvement in certain products and services, and certain controversies and violations of norms and standards. This screening, directly or indirectly, maps to some of the adverse sustainability indicators set out in Table 1 of Annex I of the Level 2 Measures.

    LGIM sets minimum thresholds for both of these components in Active ESG View. These are then supplemented by LGIM’s qualitative assessment of the sustainability risks and opportunities relating to the relevant issuer. This qualitative assessment is performed by the Global Research and Engagement Groups (“GREGs”) which bring together representatives from LGIM’s investment and investment stewardship teams across regions and asset classes. Where issuers fail to meet either of the components of the quantitative assessment, and the GREGs have reviewed and agreed with the assessment through qualitative analysis, LGIM will seek to limit the Fund’s aggregate exposure to such issuers relative to their weights in the Benchmark Index.

    The sustainability indicator that will be used in relation to the attainment of the environmental and social characteristics relating to this process will measure the aggregate overweight exposure to issuers that are not aligned with LGIM’s requirements for ESG factor evaluation compared to such issuers' weight in the Benchmark Index.
