Mirabaud Global Climate Bond finances industry leaders in order to drive the global climate transition.
Climate change is the single biggest threat facing humanity’s existence1. To avoid an existential environmental catastrophe, the World must reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
There remains a window of opportunity to limit global warming, but it’s closing fast. Governments, industry, companies and individuals must all take action now.
As investors, we’re seeing the speed of energy transition, from fossil-fuel systems to renewables, gather pace, bringing with it, a potential opportunity to put capital to good use, and reap the financial benefits of backing a more sustainable world.

The strategy’s objective is to generate an attractive longer-term total return with low volatility, while maintaining a primary focus on climate impact and sustainability. The portfolio will seek to maintain a weighted average temperature of sub 2°C in line with the Paris Agreement targets.
We achieve this by applying three core principles:
We believe combining green and transition bonds results in maximum impact, as transition bonds essentially ‘lead the charge’ on the energy transition, and green bonds finance it.
Our fixed income experts work hand-in-hand with our SRI specialists following a repeatable, established process.
Issuer engagement is what we believe will truly move the dial on climate change and increase the speed of transition.
Given the size of the global fixed income universe, at around USD128 trillion, bond investors have the scope and influence to provide the financing to move the world to net zero. We're excited to be part of this seismic shift.
