ESG investing with Invesco ETFs

Invesco’s ESG ETFs enable investors to align portfolios with their values, offering diverse options across regions, sectors, and asset classes.

Build sustainable investing portfolios with precision and confidence

ETFs have long empowered investors looking to express their targeted views on the market and, when it comes to incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations, the situation is no different. Through thoughtful innovation Invesco have designed a range of ESG ETFs allowing investors to express their sustainable views across a breadth of regions, sectors, and asset classes.

Whether your clients simply want to avoid certain companies or industries, or help drive positive change, our wide range of ESG ETFs can help build portfolios reflecting values that matter to you and them.

Choose your ESG journey

ESG isn't a 'one size fits all' solution. No two investors' wants and needs are exactly the same. Let us help you navigate your ESG journey to finding an ETF that aligns with your values.

Investment risks

  • Any investment decision should take into account all the characteristics of the funds as described in the legal documents. For sustainability related aspects, please refer to  https://www.invescomanagementcompany.ie/dub-manco. An investment in these ETFs is an acquisition of units in a passively managed, index tracking fund rather than in the underlying assets owned by the ETFs

    Investment risks - please click here to view all ETF specific risks. For complete information on risks, refer to the legal documents. The value of investments, and any income from them, will fluctuate. This may partly be the result of changes in exchange rates. Investors may not get back the full amount invested.

ESG ETF investing FAQs

Most investors choose ESG ETFs for the same reasons they choose any other ETF: simplicity, low costs, transparency, tradability and often for the efficient way it tracks a reference index. With each Invesco ESG ETF designed to meet specific objectives, you have complete clarity on the goals and precisely how it will deliver that outcome.

This has been an area of increased focus, with some studies suggesting a positive relationship between a company’s financial and ESG performances. Moreover, some ESG indices have recently outperformed their parent (non-ESG) indices, which is partly due to the sector biases that occur naturally from exclusions, e.g. reduced weighting in energy, but could also be attributed to investors’ placing a “premium” on companies that are successfully managing ESG risks.

Whether or not ESG on its own can drive performance, investors can now find ETFs that have both ESG and financial objectives. You can choose between ESG ETFs that aim for similar returns as the parent index (with meaningful ESG improvement) or that have a greater tolerance for tracking error (with much more ESG improvement).

With environment one of the three ESG pillars, most ESG ETFs will include climate considerations either implicitly or explicitly in the index methodology. Some of our Invesco ESG ETFs go a step further by having specific climate-related goals, such as the Paris-aligned benchmark, reducing overall carbon intensity and/or increasing the amount of green revenues in the portfolio. We also offer thematic ETFs for focused exposure to climate solutions such as clean energy and solar power.

The simple answer is that any ETF that physically holds shares in a company can exercise its rights. All but one of our ESG ETFs replicate their indices by physically holding the shares. Our passive equity ETFs will vote in line with the largest active position held by Invesco, or with our ESG guidelines if no active position is held. Our global ESG team and investment managers engage with companies on key ESG issues, which includes many of those held by our passive ESG ETFs.

We’ve been helping investors incorporate their ESG objectives for the past 35 years and aim to include ESG considerations across all our investment strategies where possible. We believe engagement is one of the most effective mechanisms to reduce risks, maximise returns and have a positive impact on society and the environment. We are also committed to being a good corporate citizen and are signatories to key industry initiatives especially in the fight against climate change.

As ESG continues to grow globally, different regions have made efforts to introduce regulatory standards. Regulation will be a key factor in ensuring that efforts to integrate ESG have a tangible impact. It’ll also help to drive the standardisation of measuring and reporting.

The EU has introduced green taxonomy, Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and most recently, the Sustainable Finance Strategy to provide rules and structure to the way businesses report on their ESG activities.

Greenwashing is when companies portray a public image of sustainability but aren’t taking sufficient or tangible action behind the scenes or undertake other questionable business activities. It could be a global drinks company committing to using 100% recycled plastic but setting no actual target, or a fast fashion brand using sustainable materials but with questionable manufacturing processes. 

In the investment industry, it could be excluding obvious companies like tobacco manufacturers from a portfolio but not applying ESG analysis to the rest of it. Greater regulation and efforts to standardise measuring and reporting should help reduce the effects of greenwashing, as well as wider education.

    Invesco MSCI Emerging Markets ESG Climate Paris Aligned UCITS ETF, Invesco Solar Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Wind Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Hydrogen Economy UCITS ETF

    Emerging markets: As a large portion of this fund is invested in less developed countries, investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for an ETF that invests only in developed markets.

    Invesco EUR Government and Related Green Transition Bond UCITS ETF, Invesco EUR Corporate Bond ESG Multi-Factor UCITS ETF, Invesco EUR Corporate Bond ESG Short Duration Multi-Factor UCITS ETF & Invesco Corporate Bond ESG UCITS ETFs

    Credit risk: The creditworthiness of the debt the Fund is exposed to may weaken and result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund. There is no guarantee the issuers of debt will repay the interest and capital on the redemption date. The risk is higher when the Fund is exposed to high yield debt securities.

    Interest rates: Changes in interest rates will result in fluctuations in the value of the fund.

    Environmental, social and governance: The Fund intends to invest in securities of issuers that manage their ESG exposures better relative to their peers. This may affect the Fund’s exposure to certain issuers and cause the Fund to forego certain investment opportunities. The Fund may perform differently to other funds, including underperforming other funds that do not seek to invest in securities of issuers based on their ESG ratings.

    Currency: The Fund’s performance may be adversely affected by variations in the exchange rates between the base currency of the Fund and the currencies to which the Fund is exposed.

    Invesco EUR Government and Related Green Transition Bond UCITS ETF

    Securities lending: The Fund may be exposed to the risk of the borrower defaulting on its obligation to return the securities at the end of the loan period and of being unable to sell the collateral provided to it if the borrower defaults.

    Green Bond Risk: The Fund invests in Green Bonds which means the Fund will be more affected by the performance of Green Bonds than a fund that is more diversified across the bond market. The market for Green Bonds and related regulation is evolving. The current accepted market standard definitions of “green” may change over time and in such event, the Fund may change the definition of Green Bonds that is applied by the Fund.

    Equity: The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by a number of factors including the activities and results of the issuer and general and regional economic and market conditions. This may result in fluctuations in the value of the Fund.

    Concentration: The Fund might be concentrated in a specific region or sector or be exposed to a limited number of positions, which might result in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund than for a fund that is more diversified.

    Invesco MSCI USA ESG Climate Paris Aligned UCITS ETF, Invesco MSCI Japan ESG Climate Paris Aligned UCITS ETF

    Country Concentration Risk: The Fund is invested in a particular geographical region, which might result in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund than for a fund with a broader geographical investment mandate.

    Invesco Nasdaq-100 ESG UCITS ETF, Invesco Solar Energy UCITS ETF

    Sector concentration: As this fund has significant exposure to one or a small number of sectors, investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for an ETF with a broader investment mandate.

    Invesco Global Clean Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Wind Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Hydrogen Economy UCITS ETF

    Small companies: As this fund invests primarily in small-sized companies, investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than for an ETF with a broader investment mandate.

    Invesco Wind Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Hydrogen Economy UCITS ETF, Invesco MSCI Emerging Markets ESG Climate Paris Aligned UCITS ETF

    Stock Connect: The Fund may use Stock Connect to access China A Shares traded in Mainland China. This may result in additional liquidity risk and operational risks including settlement and default risks, regulatory risk and system failure risk.

    Invesco MSCI Emerging Markets ESG Climate Paris Aligned UCITS ETF

    Sampling Risk: The use of a representative sampling approach will result in the Fund holding a smaller number of securities than are in the underlying index. As a result, an adverse development to an issuer of securities that the Fund holds could result in a greater decline in NAV than would be the case if the Fund held all of the securities in the underlying index.

    Liquidity Risk: It may be difficult for the Fund to buy or sell certain instruments in stressed market conditions. Consequently, the price obtained when selling such instruments may be lower than under normal market conditions.

    Invesco S&P 500 ESG UCITS ETF

    Synthetic ETF Risk: The fund might purchase securities that are not contained in the reference index and will enter into swap agreements to exchange the performance of those securities for the performance of the reference index.

    Use of derivatives for index tracking: The Fund’s ability to track the benchmark’s performance is reliant on the counterparties to continuously deliver the performance of the benchmark in line with the swap agreements and would also be affected by any spread between the pricing of the swaps and the pricing of the benchmark. The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Fund to financial loss.

    Invesco Nasdaq-100 ESG UCITS ETF

    Single country: As this fund invests in companies from a single country, investors should be prepared to accept a higher degree of risk than an ETF that is geographically diversified.

    Invesco Global Clean Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Solar Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Wind Energy UCITS ETF, Invesco Hydrogen Economy UCITS ETF

    Clean Energy: Investments into the clean energy sector are considerably exposed to investment trends focused on environmental factors and may have sensitivities towards ESG related government regulations and tax implications.

    Invesco Solar Energy UCITS ETF

    Holdings concentration: The Fund might be exposed to a limited number of positions which might result in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund than for a fund that is more diversified.
