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.
It’s the final call to save the world from climate catastrophe, say, scientists, the most extensive warning yet on the risks of rising global temperatures.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the UN body responsible for assessing the science related to climate change, outlines the importance of keeping global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels or risk significant and dangerous changes to our world.
Whilst the challenges are high, keeping warming below 1.5°C by the end of the century is still feasible according to widely acknowledged scientific literature and 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 Time to Act is Now!
The Climate Impact Asia Fund (launching in 1Q 2019) will pursue a liquid long-only equity impact ESG strategy that invests into leading companies in Asia that are actively focused on tackling environmental pollution and climate change.
The Fund will seek to achieve strong long-term, risk-adjusted returns by combining rigorous bottom-up analysis with a top-down country and sector allocations across the key Asian markets of China, Taiwan, India, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.
The Fund incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment criteria and places particular emphasis on well-managed companies in Asia with significant exposure to the environmental sector and the development of the regional low carbon economy.
In addition to the impact-led investments of the fund mandate, a significant portion of the fund’s management fees are directly donated to support one of the world’s leading NGO’s conservation projects in Asia whose mission is to stop the degradation of our planet’s natural environment and build a future in which people can live in harmony with nature.
