Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics can help investors integrate non-financial, sustainability considerations into their investment process. These metrics enable investors to evaluate funds based on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. This analysis can provide insight into the effective management and long-term financial prospects of a fund.


The metrics below have been provided for transparency and informational purposes only. The existence of an ESG rating is not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. The metrics are based on MSCI ESG Fund Ratings and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.

MSCI ESG Fund Rating (AAA-CCC) as of 07-Oct-2021 AA
MSCI ESG Quality Score (0-10) as of 07-Oct-2021 7.49
MSCI ESG Quality Score - Peer Percentile as of 07-Oct-2021 64.10
MSCI ESG % Coverage as of 07-Oct-2021 95.45
Fund Lipper Global Classification as of 07-Oct-2021 Bond Global Corporates LC
MSCI Weighted Average Carbon Intensity (Tons CO2E/$M SALES) as of 07-Oct-2021 242.23
Funds in Peer Group as of 07-Oct-2021 78
All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of 07-Oct-2021, based on holdings as of 31-Aug-2021. As such, the fund’s sustainable characteristics may differ from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings from time to time.

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s gross weight must come from securities covered by MSCI ESG Research (certain cash positions and other asset types deemed not relevant for ESG analysis by MSCI are removed prior to calculating a fund’s gross weight; the absolute values of short positions are included but treated as uncovered), the fund’s holdings date must be less than one year old, and the fund must have at least ten securities. For newly launched funds, sustainability characteristics are typically available 6 months after launch.

Business Involvement

Business Involvement

Business Involvement metrics can help investors gain a more comprehensive view of specific activities in which a fund may be exposed through its investments.


Business Involvement metrics are not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics, using links below.

MSCI - Controversial Weapons as of 27-Oct-2021 0.74%
MSCI - UN Global Compact Violators as of 27-Oct-2021 1.61%
MSCI - Nuclear Weapons as of 27-Oct-2021 0.66%
MSCI - Thermal Coal as of 27-Oct-2021 0.06%
MSCI - Civilian Firearms as of 27-Oct-2021 0.09%
MSCI - Oil Sands as of 27-Oct-2021 0.27%
MSCI - Tobacco as of 27-Oct-2021 0.99%

Business Involvement Coverage as of 27-Oct-2021 89.94%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of 27-Oct-2021 6.53%
BlackRock business involvement exposures as shown above for Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are calculated and reported for companies that generate more than 5% of revenue from thermal coal or oil sands as defined by MSCI ESG Research. For the exposure to companies that generate any revenue from thermal coal or oil sands (at a 0% revenue threshold), as defined by MSCI ESG Research, it is as follows: Thermal Coal 0.56% and for Oil Sands 2.50%.

Business Involvement metrics are calculated by BlackRock using data from MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this data to provide a summed up view across holdings and translates it to a fund's market value exposure to the listed Business Involvement areas above.


Business Involvement metrics are designed only to identify companies where MSCI has conducted research and identified as having involvement in the covered activity. As a result, it is possible there is additional involvement in these covered activities where MSCI does not have coverage. This information should not be used to produce comprehensive lists of companies without involvement. Business Involvement metrics are only displayed if at least 1% of the fund’s gross weight includes securities covered by MSCI ESG Research.
