Sustainable Investing Solutions

BlackRock currently manages a broad suite of dedicated sustainable investment solutions, ranging from green bonds and renewable infrastructure to thematic strategies that allow clients to align their capital with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. With deep expertise in alpha-seeking and index strategies, across public equity and debt, private renewable power, commodities and real asset strategies, we are continuing to build scalable and customized solutions across asset classes.

We do not view this as an exercise in trading return for social outcomes. Instead, by identifying scalable, sustainable investment solutions that can potentially enhance long-term returns, we may improve financial outcomes for our clients and accelerate the adoption of sustainable business practices globally.
