DJE - Umwelt & Werte

Investing responsibly

Fund overview

DJE - Umwelt & Werte is a global equity fund that places particular emphasis on the sustainability factors of environment, social issues and good corporate governance (ESG) when selecting stocks. Companies are considered sustainable if they contribute to achieving the Paris climate targets (environment) or have a positive impact on society through products, processes or special commitment, or companies that do not have a negative impact on society or whose positive impact justifies the negative impact (social). The fund management pursues a best-in-class approach. The fund aims to achieve an appropriate increase in value, taking into account the investment and sustainability risks. The fund is fully aligned with globally applicable sustainability requirements and complies with the disclosure obligations pursuant to Article 8 of EU Regulation 2019/2088 for the financial services sector.

 

Investment concept

In the face of climate change, 195 countries are pursuing the goal of limiting global warming to "well below" two degrees Celsius compared to the pre-industrial era, according to the Paris Climate Change Agreement of 2015. International and national efforts - in Germany, for example, the energy turnaround - to reduce CO2 emissions are influencing economies around the globe and opening up opportunities in many sectors and thematic areas, such as energy generation through wind and solar power or through green hydrogen, energy storage, the automotive industry (keyword e-mobility), infrastructure, technology, the agricultural sector or chemicals. DJE works with MSCI ESG Research, a leading international provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis and ratings. The investment universe is screened on the basis of ESG filters. The fund management of DJE - Umwelt & Werte analyses the closer selection qualitatively and invests in what it considers to be the most promising stocks from an ESG point of view. The focus is on companies that have a positive impact on society and the environment. Companies are excluded if their business practices violate the United Nations' guidelines on human and labour rights or environmental protection, if they promote corruption or if they generate more than 5% of their sales through weapons, gambling, nuclear energy, coal from power plants or genetically modified seeds, for example.
