klimaVest: Ein Klebezettel mit Impact

Doing more together Our membership of the Federal Impact Investing Initiative

25.11.2020 2 Reading Time

With klimaVest – our impact fund for retail investors – we are contributing to creating more sustainable living environments and are following our aspiration to take responsibility. The fund, which aims to include a high share of tangible assets, brings together private investment capital and our expertise in renewable energy: klimaVest combines asset investment with measurable CO₂ savings by focusing primarily on attractive assets from sustainable infrastructure projects – for example in the areas of onshore and offshore wind farms or photovoltaics. 

The “impact” therefore results from the influence the investment has on specific questions: How does investing in the environment help, how does it benefit society? The benefit of a wind farm, for example, is that it increases the proportion of green electricity in the electricity grid and paves the way to a zero-emission energy economy.

We know that the fund has the potential to write history for Commerz Real. But we also know that if we really want to tackle climate change, the economy, society and politics must work together on the social and environmental challenges. Only together can we find sustainable solutions and make the best possible use of synergies.

An important building block for this is the Federal Impact Investing Initiative, which we as a member therefore actively support.

klimaVest as an impact fund for retail investors addresses a key challenge of our time – to use capital effectively for the environment. Complex challenges such as climate change require joint action – which is why we would like to support the objectives of the Federal Impact Investing Initiative in order to drive forward impact-oriented investment in terms of environmental and social issues together.
