The Eurosif Transparency Code is designed to enable investors the opportunity to quickly and confidently determine whether and where they can find detailed information on the sustainable investment strategy of an investment product. With an increasing number of sustainable funds, the diversity of investment strategies with regard to the sustainability of investment products is also increasing. The Transparency Code and the Transparency Logo help to make a fund’s investment strategy more comprehensible to both the general public and other interested groups, such as asset managers and rating agencies.

Since the launch in 2008 over 450 funds have been awarded with a Transparency Logo via the FNG.

Being a signatory to Eurosif’s European Transparency Code is a prerequisite and minimum requirement to qualify for the FNG-Label, which is awarded by QNG the Quality Assurance Organisation for Sustainable Investments. The FNG-Label ensures both, a minimum standard for sustainable investment funds, as well as more extensive quality features that distinguish a comprehensive sustainability strategy of the funds.

FNG and QNG can not assume any legal or other responsibility for incorrect or misleading information provided by the signatory funds in their responses to the Eurosif Transparency Code.

For all questions regarding the Transparency Code in Germany, please refer to FNG.
