LuxFLAG LABEL

Climate Finance

The primary objective of the LuxFLAG Climate Finance Label is to reassure investors that the investment product invests at least 75% of total assets in investments related, with a clear and direct link, to mitigation and/or adaptation of climate change or cross-cutting activities.

Launched in September 2016, the LuxFLAG Climate Finance Label helps to unlock capital from institutional and private investors, in order to support the financing of climate change actions.
