Creating a sustainable future

Our Planet+ range is comprised of funds we have categorised as ESG Enhanced, Sustainable and Impact.

As a minimum, all funds in the Planet+ range exclude companies:

  • involved in the controversial weapons industry
  • deemed to be in breach of the United Nations Global Compact Principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption
  • involved in unconventional oil and gas extraction (such as oil sands and Arctic drilling)
  • involved in tobacco (production and distribution)
  • involved in adult entertainment (production and those deriving revenue from that business)
  • providing gambling services

A fund’s investment manager may apply revenue thresholds when applying these exclusions, and may also grant exceptions against the exclusions. This is described in more detail in the fund documents.

The Planet+ funds also all comply with the M&G Investments Coal Policy.

This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the prospectus and to the KIID before making any final investment decisions. The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. The views expressed in this document should not be taken as a recommendation, advice or forecast. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Please note, investing in this fund means acquiring units or shares in a fund, and not in a given underlying asset such as building or shares of a company, as these are only the underlying assets owned by the fund.
