LuxFLAG LABEL

Environment

The primary objective of the LuxFLAG Environment Label is to reassure investors that the investment product primarily invests their assets in environment-related sectors in a responsible manner. The eligibility criteria for the Environment Label require eligible funds to have a portfolio of investments in environment-related sectors corresponding to at least 75% of the fund’s total assets.

Launched in July 2011, the LuxFLAG Environment Label helps to unlock capital from institutional and private investors, in order to support the financing of environment related assets.
