SDG Engagement High Yield Credit

H1 2020 Report

26 August 2020 |
Seeking twin objectives of strong financial performance and positive social and environmental impacts that contribute to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we launched SDG Engagement High Yield Credit in October 2019.

Engaging for change

In our first full financial half-year, we adapted to the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic and market sell-off to initiate engagements with 78% of our portfolio companies on objectives aligned with the SDGs. Our H1 2020 report explains our integrated investment and engagement strategy for achieving outperformance and impact, examines which SDGs our engagements have most strongly been aligned with so far and provides case studies illustrating the clear focus and measurable outcomes guiding this activity.
