Climate-related portfolio ambitions of the Swiss Life Group
Renewable energy as an opportunity
Swiss Life wishes to seize the opportunities arising from the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy. It is therefore ensuring that its infrastructure funds include investments in renewable energy.
The infrastructure funds managed by Swiss Life Asset Managers hold several renewable energy infrastructure real assets as direct investments. At the end of the year under review, 18% of the infrastructure portfolio of Swiss Life Asset Managers was invested in renewable energy facilities. In total, these facilities produce renewable energy for the equivalent of approximately 500 000 households. Swiss Life’s infrastructure investments thus contribute to achieving the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
