We cannot give this baseline performance as we use a bottom-up approach, which means that the performance depends on the fund (and benchmark used).

We use the pathway of the EU Benchmarks, based on the IPCC 1.5°C climate scenarios. This translates to an average of 7% carbon reduction (on fund level, on a comply or explain basis), based on the benchmark of the specific portfolios.

Further information:

Target setting: With our commitment, policy, governance, targets, measures and reporting we aim to decarbonise our investment portfolios in a way that is consistent with achieving global net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Our approach incorporates elements from the Paris Aligned Investment Initiative’s Net Zero Investment Framework, and we will enhance our approach going forward whereby we will also take this framework into account as well.

Alignment assessment and engagement: We use ESG instruments to reach our objectives and ensure reductions in the real economy. These include climate sector engagements (direct and collaborative engagements via the Climate Action 100+), integration of climate risks and opportunities in portfolios, climate related exclusions and impact related investments. More details can be found in our climate change policy.

We have integrated climate change in our governance, strategy, targets and metrics (where feasible and relevant). We report on these climate change elements in our annual TCFD disclosures (to be found here: task-force-on-climate-related-financialdisclosures-25-02-2021.pdf (
