Welcome to the sustainability side of Börse Frankfurt

Are you looking for sustainable investment opportunities? Then you will find a lot of information here.

Sustainability in investment means taking ecological, social and ethical aspects into account in investment decisions, in addition to the classic criteria of profitability, liquidity and security. In doing so, you consider how sustainable companies are in terms of ecological and social compatibility as well as good corporate governance.

The sense of sustainable investments

Global trends such as climate change, environmental degradation, shortage of important resources, demographic developments and their social impact are becoming increasingly important for private and professional investors. After all, the capital market also has a responsibility to support an ecologically and socially sustainable economic system that counteracts climate change and the scarcity of resources. 

Moreover, sustainability in the portfolio does not cost yield as some studies have now shown. In some cases, investments that are made in accordance with ESG criteria perform better in the long term. Sustainable investments are therefore explicitly not to be equated with a loss of return.

The application of ESG criteria offers you as an investor the opportunity to take your individual economic and social orientation into account and to make a contribution to sustainable development. The inclusion of ESG criteria is therefore an essential component of responsible and forward-looking investment behaviour and minimises risks.

Different asset classes offer you different possibilities to consider ESG criteria: Shares, funds, ETFs and certificates. Discover the many ways to combine social and economic aspects.
