Invest in sustainable ETFs with DEGIRO

Is sustainability important to you or do you believe a sustainable ETF would be a good fit for your portfolio? Investing in ETFs is an easy way to increase the diversification of your portfolio. On our platform you will find a wide selection of sustainable ETFs.

Not every sustainable ETF is the same. ETFs differ from each other in several factors, such as fund size, price, risk and underlying value. For example, they may track different companies or indices. Also, some may pay dividends and others may not.

These are the five most traded sustainable ETFs by our clients in 2022.

What is an ETF?

ETFs, also known as trackers, are funds that follow the performance of an index, commodity, bond or composition of products. Unlike some other funds, ETFs are bought and sold on a stock exchange. Would you like to learn more about ETFs? Read our ETF article. for all you need to know.

Investing in sustainability means investing in companies that are working to create a more sustainable world. Sustainability is an umbrella term for a number of criteria that selected companies must meet. A commonly used measure is ESG, which stands for Environment, Social and Governance. Companies that meet ESG benchmarks score high in these areas. They try to protect the environment by reducing their carbon emissions and ensure the best possible working conditions. They operate with socially responsible governance, which not only strives for gender equality and diversity within the company, but also treats stakeholders and the environment responsibly. By investing with sustainability in mind, you can support well-meaning companies.

Due to the growing interest in climate and social developments, sustainable investing has been increasing in popularity in recent years. Companies are increasingly adapting their business operations to sustainability criteria, and companies have emerged that actively combat climate change, such as manufacturers of wind turbines and solar collectors.


Why invest in sustainable ETFs?

With increasing interest in sustainability, more and more investors want to actively participate in making the world a better place. Sustainability is a broad field and investors can invest in it for a variety of reasons; return and moral conviction are different drivers. ETFs therefore follow different principles. Most ETFs exclude industries such as tobacco and the arms industry. There are ETFs that invest only in companies that already fully meet sustainability criteria, and ETFs that also invest in companies that are still on their way toward sustainability. For investors who want to invest in specific aspects of sustainability, there are thematic funds, e.g., ETFs that invest in clean energy.

Because of the wide diversity of ETF investments, it is difficult to make general statements about the price performance of sustainability funds. If an investor takes a broad view of the sustainability criteria, they can choose a well-diversified ETF. The more specifically they want to invest, the more the returns will depend on the sector in which their ETF invests.
