Itaú Unibanco Launches Carbon Investment Funds

In line with its vision to address climate change, Itaú Unibanco offers investment solutions that promote innovation in the Brazilian market and respond to the quest for lower Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. The launch of Fundos Itaú Ecomudança in 2007, which earmarks 30% of the management fee for projects aimed at reducing GHG emissions, was followed by the launch of the first Brazilian investment fund linked to a carbon credit index, Fundo Itaú Índice de Carbono.

The Bank provides diversified investment opportunities for all people concerned about climate change seeking financial returns and an alternative to offset impacts. By expanding the offer of environmental funds, with Fundo Itaú Índice de Carbono, Itaú Unibanco stimulates the development of the carbon credit market and contributes to tackling climate change with the hopes that other banks will follow suit.

One of the projects supported by Fundos Itaú Ecomudança (Farol do Sol) provides the community of fishermen in the southern Patos Lagoon, in Rio Grande do Sul, with solar lanterns to replace gas lanterns for fishing shrimp at night. The replacement improves the quality of work and contributes to increase income and reduce poverty. Another initiative supported by the Funds is EcoPommer Sustainable Project, which seeks a technology that enables better management of waste in 373 laying hen farms in the region of Santa Maria do Jetibá, in Espírito Santo.
