The Fund invests primarily (at least two-thirds and typically substantially more) in the shares of companies which the Investment Manager believes contribute to positive environmental change through sustainable decarbonisation (the process of reducing carbon dioxide emissions). This means the Investment Manager focuses on identifying companies whose products, technologies and/or services avoid carbon, relative to their industry peers. Examples may include companies which provide, utilize, implement or advise upon technology-based systems, products or services in environmental markets, particularly those of alternative energy, decarbonisation and energy efficiency, water treatment and pollution control, and waste technology and resource management.

This approach means that not all companies in the portfolio will have low absolute levels of carbon emissions as the company"s shares may be selected because the Investment Manager believes the company contributes to sustainable decarbonisation in another way. The Fund does not place a time limit on an investment in the shares of a company and may remain invested in the shares of companies that do not reduce their absolute carbon emissions, provided that the company continues to meet the criteria set out above.
