4 The New Climate Economy: Report summary
The amount of carbon credits to be acquired (and retired) for a IG Climate Action Portfolio is subject to the following maximum cost per annum, measured as a percentage of the net asset value of the applicable IG Climate Action Portfolio: Global Equity & Global Equity Balanced 0.08%, Global Neutral Balanced & Global Fixed Income Balanced 0.07%. If the cost to offset the carbon footprint of a IG Climate Action Portfolio exceeds the maximum cost, it will result in a partial offset of the IG Climate Action Portfolio’s carbon footprint (rather than a complete offset).
