The M&G Climate Solutions Fund is designed to deliver both financial returns for investors and a positive impact for the planet. We aim to do this by investing in companies that we believe can deliver solutions to the challenge of climate change.
We focus on three main impact areas – clean energy, green technology and the promotion of a circular economy – that present a breadth of long-term opportunities for investors.
The fund embraces the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a universally recognised articulation of the most pressing challenges facing people and the planet. We look to invest in companies that are making a material, measurable and positive contribution towards any of the six key SDGs that relate to climate change.
The investment team start by "screening out" companies that are seen as unsuitable for the fund. They exclude companies in breach of the UN Global Compact Principles on human rights, labour, the environment or corruption, as well as those in the business of coal mining or the extraction of oil or gas, among others

The value of any fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
