The European Green Deal is a piece of EU policy that aims to reduce greenhouse gases by 55% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through various means.

Investable themes the ETF will touch on include clean energy, sustainable mobility, building and renovation, and the circular economy.

Hector McNeil, founder and co-CEO of HANetf, commented: “The European Green Deal is set to reshape the European Union’s economy over the coming decades, as member states strive to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. This will require considerable investment and should promote the growth of companies that have a role to play in the transition.”
