Sustainable and transition investing with BlackRock

Clients are increasingly asking BlackRock how to mitigate risks to their portfolios, and capture investment opportunities associated with sustainability and the transition to a low-carbon economy. As a fiduciary, we invest on our clients’ behalf to help them meet their investment objectives. Our investment approach is informed by three principals: we provide choice, we seek the best risk-adjusted returns with the mandates clients give us, and we underpin our work with research, data, and analytics.

Capital at risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of the investment and the income from it will vary and the initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.

Our investment approach to sustainable and transition investing

Our approach to sustainability and the transition to a low-carbon economy is rooted in our fiduciary duty to our clients.
