ESG FILTERS Listed European companies with high ESG standards are selected based on Vigeo Eiris ESG score, BNP Paribas Asset Management ESG score, and involvment in particular activities, such as armament, tobacco, and gambling.

PORTFOLIO CONSTRAINTS Selection is made to ensure liquidity and risk reduction, e.g. through diversification (i.e. min 100 stocks and limits to single-sector weighting), having a 5% tracking error to the benchmark as an objective.

CLIMATE CARE FOCUS Companies are selected based on carbon emissions and energy transition strategy, following a scoring method provided by Vigeo Eiris.

CARBON OFFSETTING The residual carbon footprint of the portfolio is offset every quarter through the purchase of VERs (Verified Emission Reductions certificates) from the Kasigau Corridor REDD+ project in Kenya.
