The underlying index is overweight in bonds from countries that are less exposed to the effects of climate change. For this purpose, the physical risk of climate change (eg natural disasters) and the precautionary measures taken by the respective country are considered, as well as the cost of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Investors have the choice between an accumulating and a distributing share class.
