    Sustainability-related Disclosures

    SFDR categorisation: Article 9Article 9: These funds have a sustainable investment objective

    Environmental characteristics
    Social characteristics

    The sustainable investment objective of the Fund is to provide low carbon emission exposure to the small, mid and large-cap equity market in Europe. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by tracking the performance of the Foxberry Sustainability Consensus Europe Total Return Index (the “Index”). The Index is constructed to meet the minimum requirements of the EU Paris-aligned Benchmark Regulations (Regulation EU 2019/2089) (the “PAB Regulation”). The Index is a reference benchmark that has been designated for the purpose of attaining the sustainable investment objective of the Fund.

    The Fund follows the following sustainability-related investment strategy by tracking the Index that applies:

    Battery Value-Chain Theme
    Clean Water Theme
    Clean Energy Theme
    Hydrogen Economy Theme
    Healthcare Breakthrough Theme
    Pharma Breakthrough Theme
    Green Bonds
    RAFI ESG Score

    SDG Alignment
    Carbon Emissions Intensity Target
    LGIM ESG Score
    LGIM's Future World Protection List
    LGIM's Climate Impact Pledge
    Foxberry Paris Aligned

    The Index is designed to meet the requirements set out for EU Paris-aligned Benchmarks in the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/1818 supplementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1011 of the European Parliament and European Council with regards to the minimum standards for EU Climate Transition Benchmarks and EU Paris-aligned Benchmarks in order to be designated as an EU Paris-aligned Benchmark.

    The Index applies the following exclusions:

    Exclusion Guidelines based on the requirements under the PAB Regulation:

    • companies involved in any activities related to controversial weapons;
    • companies involved in the cultivation and production of tobacco;
    • companies in violation of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) principles or the OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises;
    • companies deriving a percentage of their revenues in excess of the threshold determined by the Index Provider from any of the following activities:
      • exploration, mining, extraction, distribution or refining of hard coal and lignite;
      • exploration, extraction, distribution or refining of fossil fuels;
      • exploration, extraction, manufacturing or distribution of gaseous fuels;
      • electricity generation with a greenhouse gas ("GHG") intensity in excess of a level determined by the Index Provider.

    Additional Exclusion Guidelines:

    • companies deriving revenue from the mining of thermal coal and its sale to external parties;
    • companies deriving revenue from unconventional oil and gas;
    • companies with material stranded assets;
    • companies deriving a percentage of their revenues from environmentally harmful activities (as determined by the Index methodology document), in excess of the threshold determined by the Index Provider;
    • companies not conforming to minimum standards of business practice as determined by the Index Provider.

    The Sustainability Committee constructs the list of stocks that are not excluded by the Exclusion Guidelines such that they follow the required decarbonisation trajectory (i.e. a minimum annual reduction in emissions). In addition, a weighting adjustment is applied in order to ensure that the aggregate weight of sectors that should actively reduce GHG emissions should not be less than the aggregate weight of these sectors in the Underlying Universe.

    The Index Provider, Foxberry Ltd, determines the constituents of the Index. Further information on the index methodology can be found at: and

    Sustainable Investments

    The Fund is a financial product subject to Article 9(3) of SFDR with an objective of low carbon emission exposure in view of achieving the long-term global warming objectives of the Paris Agreement (“Paris-aligned Objective”). Whilst the Fund does not commit to a minimum proportion of its portfolio in sustainable investments, it is expected to have a higher proportion of sustainable investments than the broad market index which does not have a Paris-aligned Objective.
