Global Climate Change

Investment Objective

Schroders Global Climate Change seeks to provide capital growth primarily through investment in equities securities of worldwide issuers which will benefit from efforts to accommodate or limit the impact of global climate change.

We do not define a specific performance target but we believe that over time, companies well-positioned with regard to climate change will significantly outperform broad world indices.


Schroders Global Climate Change Equity is an actively managed, thematic strategy capturing opportunities around the world by investing in companies we believe will be positively impacted by efforts to transition to a low carbon economy. The impact of global warming on the economy and companies will be far reaching and profound. We believe that companies that recognize the threats and embrace the challenges early, or that form part of the solution to the problems linked to climate change, will ultimately outperform the broader market. The strategy will typically invest in 40-70 stocks of companies exposed to five key sub-themes: Energy efficiency, sustainable transport, clean energy, environmental resources and low carbon leaders.
