Carbon footprint

Etica Sgr measures and discloses the greenhouse gases of its sustainable and responsible Funds.

The carbon footprint is a calculation of the direct and indirect emissions (Scope 1, Scope 2) generated by a product, organization or individual. We use this rigorous assessment of sustainability to give an accurate measure of the environmental impact of Etica investments Funds. Results of the carbon footprint analysis are taken into account in the whole investment process: from the analysis of issuers and securities to dialogue with companies.

The environmental impact of our investments

Carbon footprint di Etica Sgr

Since 2015 Etica signed the Montréal Carbon Pledge [1] and made the public a commitment to measuring and reporting the emissions of its portfolio through a calculation of its carbon footprint, focusing attention on the environmental aspects of sustainable and responsible investments.

In 2021 Etica extended the boundaries of the carbon footprint analysis covering all funds of Sistema Etica and all asset classes. Beyond that, Etica follow metrics recommended by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
