Explore our sustainable fund range

At BlackRock we have designed a sustainable platform offering both index and single and multi-theme strategies across all asset classes.1

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.



Find the product that aligns with your portfolio’s sustainable goals

BlackRock’s Sustainable Investing framework lets you navigate to sustainable funds that meet your sustainable goals. This framework is available on our websites, where you can also filter funds by other sustainable characteristics, such as Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) classifications and Implied Temperature Rise (ITR) bands.

You can seek sustainable alpha opportunities

At BlackRock, We believe in the opportunity sustainable investing offers for alpha generation along with participation in engagement and impact investing.2

We also offer quality, clarity and choice with indexing

The comprehensive range of iShares sustainable equity and fixed income ETFs are managed by global teams of over 130 portfolio managers using Aladdin™, our risk management platform, and supported by BlackRock’s sustainability experts.3

Risk. The environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) considerations discussed herein may affect an investment team’s decision to invest in certain companies or industries from time to time. Results may differ from portfolios that do not apply similar ESG considerations to their investment process.

Risk: While proprietary technology platforms may help manage risk, risk cannot be eliminated.

Our Screened approach


BlackRock’s range of Screened funds cover a comprehensive spectrum of exposures and outcomes across active and index investing.

Our Screened approach lets you exclude controversial activities and companies that benefit from them, as defined by BlackRock’s baseline screens.

Our baseline screens include:

• Controversial weapons
• Thermal coal
• Tar sands
• Civilian firearms
• Tobacco
• Nuclear weapons
• United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) violators

Further screens may be applied depending on the investment strategy of the fund.

You can explore our product ranges below or view all Screened funds.

Screened active investing

We have a rapidly expanding range of sustainable Screened active funds across all asset classes, enabling investors to choose an approach that aligns to their specific goals.

Through a set of baseline screens, we ensure consistency in our approach to exclusionary screening, consider the materiality of ESG risks, and continue to assist clients who wish to eliminate specific exposures to sectors or activities.

Our Screened approach excludes controversial activities and companies that benefit from them. The baseline screens are applied to all funds that sit within the Screened category of our sustainable investing framework. We also apply the screens to new active fund launches, where the exclusions do not interfere with the fund’s investment strategy. Further screens may be applied on a tactical basis.

Screened index investing

Our Screened index funds let you exclude certain business activities that pose risks or don’t match investor preferences. Screened funds are designed for investors looking to screen out controversial business areas while maintaining a profile similar to traditional benchmarks.

Our Impact approach


Our Impact approach supports investments that seek to generate measurable and tangible sustainable impact outcomes alongside a financial return.

You can explore our product ranges below or view all Impact Funds.

Impact active investing

Our Impact active suite features strategies where investments are made with the intention to generate positive, measurable environmental and social impact alongside a positive financial return. The specific allocations may be considered within the parameters of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our impact offering provides investors with regular, tangible, and dedicated reporting on progress towards the invested outcomes. An example of this is the Global Impact Fund Annual Impact Report.

Some examples of investor contribution include:

• Capital directly invested in green bonds

• Strategic engagement leading to portfolio companies’ increased impact

• Investment strategy not only aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but also advances the SDGs.

Impact index investing

Our Impact ETFs and index funds seek to generate a measurable sustainable outcome, alongside a financial return.

Green bonds

Unlike with other instruments, green bond investors can afford higher levels of transparency via impact reporting. All green bonds must follow the Green Bond Principles to be index eligible and as such, report the environmental metrics of the projects funded by their proceeds on an annual basis.

BlackRock is the first asset manager to offer portfolio level impact reporting for a co-mingled green bond product (iShares Green Bond Index Fund (IE)), helping investors to track and understand the true impact of an investment.
