Deka Investments launches new ETFs on Xetra offering sustainable, climate-friendly investments

Deka Investment has launched five new ETFs on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt offering access to sustainable, climate-friendly investments.

With the five Deka MSCI Climate Change ESG UCITS ETFs, investors can invest in large and medium-sized companies from Germany, the eurozone, Europe, USA and global industrial nations, considering sustainability criteria.

The individual index components are evaluated based on environmental, social or corporate governance (ESG) criteria. In addition to the exclusion of companies that do not meet certain ESG criteria, companies that violate the principles of the UN Global Compact are excluded. Furthermore, companies with lower CO2 emissions are given a higher weighting in the index. The aim is to select companies with a positive effect on the climate.
Any dividends are paid out to investors. The annual costs are between 0.20 and 0.25 per cent.
