Pioneers in climate-change investing


The climate emergency is the greatest challenge of our time

Amundi is deeply committed to meeting the investment objectives of its clients while contributing positively to society and a sustainable future. Our innovative, industry-leading range of climate ETFs enables you to play your part in responding to the climate emergency, in a way that suits you.


Climate: a critical investment theme

Climate change is not just a matter for the media, young people or environmentalists, it is now an imperative for investors around the world. Incorporating climate in your portfolio can help manage asset-specific investment risk and provide the prospect of capturing potential return opportunities.

The benefits of climate investing with ETFs

Pioneering passive climate investing


Amundi worked with a number of leading institutional investors to develop one of the first low carbon indices in 2014 and went on to launch an ETF tracking this index the following year.


€13bn of our passively managed assets incorporate climate-specific criteria across ETFs, index funds, smart beta and custom mandates.


According to Shareaction, Amundi voted in favour of 91% of climate related resolutions.**


Amundi launched the first ever index investment solution tracking an EU climate label benchmark in 2020 – co-designed with a group of French investors.

Aligned with the Paris Agreement

We have developed a full suite of cost-effective ETFs which allow you to ensure that your investment is aligned with the 1.5°C temperature rise objective of the 2015 Paris Agreement. Using the EU benchmark criteria we offer two levels of climate intensity for your portfolio. 


  • CTB: Our Climate Transition Benchmark strategies provide an approach to low carbon investing that maintains a broad market exposure, with a 30% reduction in carbon intensity versus the universe, and an annual 7% decarbonisation.
  • PAB: Our Paris Aligned Benchmark strategies go even further and have a 50% reduction in carbon intensity and additional exclusions of carbon intensive industries, they also have an annual 7% decarbonisation objective.


A leading range of climate investing ETFs

Our innovative and cost-effective ETF building blocks allow you to respond to the climate emergency across your equity and fixed income allocations.

* Ongoing charges - annual, all taxes included. For Amundi ETF funds, the ongoing charges correspond to the Total Expense Ratio. The ongoing charges represent the charges taken from the fund over a year. When the fund has not closed its accounts for the first time, the ongoing charges are estimated. It compares the annual total management and operating costs (all taxes included) charged to a fund against the value of that fund’s assets. Transaction cost and commissions may occur when trading ETFs.
