Environmental Impact

Invest in impactful solutions

Why make an environmental impact?

Tackling pressing environmental challenges and effecting the transition to a more sustainable world requires channeling large pools of capital toward impactful solutions. More and more companies are specializing in products, services, and technologies that help solve diverse environmental problems or significantly reduce their negative impact. Investing in such companies contributes to addressing those environmental challenges while also offering attractive long-term return potential.

Why now?

In recent years, climate change and environmental pollution have had a material negative financial impact on the global economy. The need for solutions to the multifaceted environmental challenges is opening up new markets and expanding existing ones, offering multiple opportunities for active managers.

Holger Frey, Senior Portfolio Manager, and Carly Brewster, Product Specialist, talk about how investors in the fund can contribute to making a positive environmental impact.

The Credit Suisse (Lux) Environmental Impact Equity Fund was established to steer capital toward those solutions by making focused investments in select publicly traded companies whose products, services, and technologies have the potential to accelerate a positive environmental transition while generating attractive financial returns.
