Invest in the transition to net zero
Global efforts to decarbonise the world are leading to a new period of transition. This transition to net zero is aimed at achieving a goal of net zero carbon, or greenhouse gas, emissions. While this goal has no specific target deadline, more than 120 countries have pledged to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by around 2050, supported by more than 100 regional governments, 800 cities and 1,500 companies.
The Janus Henderson Net Zero Transition Resources Active ETF (Managed Fund, ‘JZRO’) has been established to invest in companies whose products, services and activities we consider to be contributing to, or benefiting from, the goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions.
An investment in JZRO is an investment in a portfolio of companies that are involved in the production and utilisation of resources, equipment and/or commodity-related products that we believe are necessary to enable a transition to a low-carbon global economy and well-positioned to benefit from ongoing and future demand for natural resources.
Although parts of the natural resources sector are far from being carbon neutral, we believe some of these companies have a unique opportunity to enable aggregated carbon reductions equivalent to multiples of the carbon they generate.
To decide what companies contribute to the transition to net zero and whether they will form part of the JZRO portfolio, we utilise a quality-driven, bottom-up, fundamental stock selection process.
This process incorporates the application of both negative and positive filters based on environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) avoidance criteria and sustainability themes.
Our detailed Investment Principles describes how. Each investment is considered on a case by case basis by the JZRO Portfolio Management team in consultation with a dedicated Janus Henderson ESG Investment Team comprised of 14 investment professionals.
A world of opportunity awaits. Learn more about JZRO below.
