Cazenove unveils carbon offsetting scheme

Cazenove Capital has appointed Ecologi to offset the carbon footprint of its Charity Responsible Multi-Asset Fund.

The Charity Responsible Multi-Asset Fund will combine a low-carbon investment approach with a commitment to offset the remaining carbon emissions from its equity investments in joining forces with Ecologi. The chosen environmental projects will be focused on the protection of biodiversity and reforestation around the world. Investors will see the direct impact of their assets with transparent reporting on the Funds carbon footprint, the environmental projects supported and the number of trees planted.

The carbon offset cost will be absorbed by Cazenove Capital and not passed on to investors, a testament to the company’s commitment to invest for a better future.

Kate Rogers, Co-Head of Charities, Cazenove Capital, commented:
‘We are hugely excited about our collaboration with Ecologi. This gives our clients the confidence that their holdings will not only accelerate the energy transition through investment in green bonds, sustainable farming and renewable energy, but also support vital environmental projects.

“We are proud to have already protected native forests in Columbia, supported a reforestation project in Uruguay, and planted 5,000 tree seedlings in Nicaragua and Madagascar. This initiative further reinforces our steadfast commitment to investing for a better future for people and planet, as we further align our business with the 2015 Paris Agreement.”

“Available to charities of all sizes, our innovative Responsible Multi-Asset Fund has a carbon footprint of less than half of the global equity index and generates four times the social impact.”
