A fund focused on concrete solutions
The fund invests in companies that are actively working on solutions, products and services to combat climate change. To do this, we take inspiration from Prof. Paul Hawken's book "Drawdown," which proposes the 100 most impactful solutions to combat global warming.
The term 'Drawdown' represents the future point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop rising and begin to steadily decline. This is the point at which we begin the process of halting further climate change. It is a crucial turning point for life on Earth, which the Fund is fully committed to.

This sub-fund is particularly aimed at investors:
- Who want a potentially higher return than that of a financial product with a low risk.
- Who have an investment horizon of at least 5 years.
- Who strive for a balanced growth in the long term and want to invest in an international basket of shares.
The objective of the sub-fund is to offer investors, by means of an actively managed portfolio, a long-term capital gain on their investment. This objective will be achieved by investing the assets of the sub-fund primarily in shares and other equity securities, without geographical limitation.
The sub-fund invests mainly in shares and other equity securities, with diversification in terms of sectors and regions covered. The sub-fund will invest in shares and other equity instruments of companies active in developed markets (Europe, US and Japan) and may also invest in companies active in emerging markets. The sub-fund may also, in an ancillary manner, invest in term deposits, money market instruments and/or UCIs. The sub-fund may invest in UCIs (UCITS and/or other UCIs) either for the purpose of pursuing its principal investment policy, or to place its cash resources (in which case the sub-fund then invests (i) in monetary UCIs and/or (ii) in UCIs which invest in debt securities with a residual term, at the time of acquisition, not exceeding 12 months and/or the interest rate of which is adjusted at least once per year). The sub-fund may, subject to the limits defined by law, invest in financial derivative products, including, for example, futures, options, forward exchange contracts, credit default swaps or interest rate swaps in order to achieve the investment objectives and for risk hedging purposes.
