CLIMATE IMPACT
INVESTMENTS

Sustainability is a key priority for us a Milltrust and nowhere is this truer than in the realms of climate change where the imperative to tackle global warming through the adoption of new and sustainable technologies has become critical.

Our Funds & Strategies

Investment Premise

It’s the final call to save the world from climate catastrophe. Whilst the challenges are high, keeping warming below 1.5°C by the end of the century is still feasible according to the IPCC. However, with every decade lost, these challenges rise and will, at some point, become insurmountable with warming locked into 2°C and above.

The Asia-Pacific region is responsible for almost half of global carbon dioxide emissions and is the region most exposed to climate risks. But the region also houses significant opportunity to invest in world-leading companies working on climate impact solutions

The Time to Act is Now

Collaboration

The Climate Impact Asia Fund (CIAF) is managed in partnership with Milltrust International and Environmental Investment Services Asia Limited (EISAL), and with the invaluable collaboration of WWF-Hong Kong who serves as the environmental consultant to the fund and is a key member of the Investment Advisory Committee, monitoring the fund’s climate objectives, providing environmental expertise and deep knowledge on climate policies, and providing access to a global network of contacts from academia, industry, government, and civil society to enhance the fund’s impact.

STRATEGY

The Climate Impact Asia Fund is a long-only, liquid, equity impact fund, regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland, that invests in the leading Asia Pacific-listed companies making a positive impact against climate change.

In addition to its objective of maximising shareholder returns, and to further its environmental mandate, the CIAF also makes revenue-based donations to support WWF-HK’s local and Asian regional conservation programmes. These programmes are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and have a particular focus on SDGs 14 and 15, namely Life Below Water and Life on Land.

Primary Sector Focus

Primary Alignment of UN Sustainable Development Goals

The CIAF actively seeks to maximize its alignment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Achieving the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, private sector, civil society and citizens alike to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations. CIAF’s primary SDG alignment focus is on:
