A portfolio manager at Triodos Investment Management outperformed all peers in the first seven months of 2022 using Europe’s strictest sustainable fund category.

The Triodos Energy Transition Europe Fund (ticker TRTREQE NA), which invests in wind, solar and energy-storage projects, is up almost 50% so far this year. No other fund registered as Article 9 -- the greenest classification within the EU’s environmental, social and governance investing rulebook -- has done better, according to data compiled by Morningstar Inc. through the end of July.
