The main objective of the LuxFLAG Climate Finance Label is to reassure investors that the investment product invests at least 75% of total assets in related investments, with a clear and direct link to climate change mitigation and/or adaptation or cross-cutting activities.
Launched in September 2016, the LuxFLAG Climate Finance label makes it possible to unlock capital from private and institutional investors to support the financing of actions that have an impact on climate change.
