What is ESG?

Invesco’s commitment to ESG investing
At Invesco, our commitment to ESG investing is a key element of our ambition to be the most client-centric asset manager. We integrate ESG risk and opportunity factors directly into our investment decisions across asset classes, both in active and increasingly in passive strategies.

ESG Information
Although not all of our ETFs follow an index with specific ESG characteristics, the information on this page provides transparency to help you identify long-term risks and opportunities in your investments. Business Involvement screens can help you gain better insights into potentially controversial business activities that a fund or index may be exposed to.

Article 6 SFDR – for the purposes of meeting the requirements of Article 6 SFDR, we have disclosed information on Sustainability Risks in the Prospectus Addendum found in the Documents library.

Important ESG Information

The above information is for illustrative purposes only. Providing this information is not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. Unless otherwise stated in the legal offering documents (fund and share class specific Key Investor Information Document (KIID), prospectus, annual & semi-annual reports, articles), ESG integration does not change a Fund’s investment objective or constrain the Fund’s investable universe. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus, available free of charge at our website etf.invesco.com and from the issuers. The rating may vary from a rating agency to another. The rating may change over time and is not a guarantee of future performance of the fund.


MSCI ESG Fund Rating (AAA-CCC)
Designed to measure the ESG risks and opportunities of a fund’s underlying holdings, making it possible to rank or screen mutual funds and ETFs on a AAA to CCC ratings scale. This rating aims to provide fund level transparency and measure the ESG characteristics of the total portfolio. It is calculated as a direct mapping of MSCI ESG Quality Scores to letter rating categories. ESG Leaders are companies with an ESG rating of AAA or AA (best in class), and ESG Laggards are companies with an ESG rating of B or CCC.

MSCI ESG Quality Score (0-10)
Assesses the resilience of a fund's aggregate holdings to long term ESG risks. The score is provided on a 0-10 scale, with 0 and 10 being the respective lowest and highest possible scores. MSCI scores underlying holdings according to their exposure to 20 industry specific material ESG risks and their ability to manage those risks relative to peers.

Weighted Average Carbon Intensity (Tons CO2E/$M Sales)
Measures the fund’s or index’s exposure to the carbon emissions and intensity associated with its holdings, based on carbon expertise and research provided by MSCI ESG Research. It uses the carbon intensity metrics at the company level (Scope 1 + Scope 2) per US$1 million of revenue, and is calculated as the weighted average by fund or index weight.

Key risks

Shares of companies are generally considered high risk investments and may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund due to external factors.

Although the Investment Manager will continually monitor the return of the Fund in comparison to the performance of the relevant Index, there can be no guarantee that the Fund will match the performance of the Index.

If the Fund is unable to hold the securities in the exact proportion required this will affect its ability to track the Index.

As the shares of the Fund are listed on one or more stock exchange(s) there may be insufficient demand to buy or sell the shares which may cause the price to be different than the actual value of the net asset value of the Fund.

Return on your investment may be adversely affected by variations in exchange rates.
