M&G Climate Solutions Fund

Our Focus

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 fund's holdings fall into three clear categories.
