The new ETF is listed on the Xetra exchange and features an ongoing charge of 0.16%.

That makes it the lowest cost bond ETF that is linked to a Paris Aligned Benchmark (PAB).

The ETF provides investors an investment solution designed to reduce average Greenhouse gas emissions by 50% vs. its investable universe with an additional year-on-year self-decarbonization of -7% objective.

Further, the ETF will exclude some issues based on normative and sector criteria.

Fannie Wurtz, Head of Amundi ETF, Indexing and Smart Beta, said: “The launch of this ETF illustrates our unwavering commitment to developing simple, ready-to-use tools that help investors to implement their ESG and climate strategy depending on their objectives and constraints. We believe that ETFs have a critical role to play in driving the transition to a low carbon economy.”

With the launch of the latest ETF, the asset manager has created a wide range of both equity and fixed income Paris-aligned climate ETFs that are all classified under the SFDR Article 9.
