Robeco has launched a range of sustainable indices investing across seven regions.
The Robeco SDG Low-Carbon Indices aim to make a positive contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and apply the firm’s SDG framework. They will also aim to make a positive contribution to a low-carbon economy and obtain a significant carbon footprint reduction relative to other market cap indices.
The indices will be available across Global AC, Global DM, Emerging Markets, US, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Japan
Joop Huij, head of sustainable index solutions at Robeco, commented: “We’re very excited to have launched the new set of indices for our clients.
“In addition to private transparency for our clients, the SDG Low-Carbon Indices have low turnover, liquidity and transaction costs taken into account in the index construction and the high capacity is monitored and managed. This all allows for efficient implementation for our clients. Our team works closely together with Robeco’s SI Center of Expertise to ensure the new indices will remain state-of-the-art and we will keep innovating them for our clients”.
