Overall low carbon target

The Foundation’s portfolio looks to invest in a diversified range of investments that have significantly lower carbon exposure than the overall market. Our portfolio targets lower emissions not by excluding entire industries, which can add risk and reduce return, but instead by holding a greater weight than the broad market in companies with high or above-average sustainability scores.
