Amplified: weaving the SDGs into investment processes

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals, targets and indicators for global development. They have been called a blueprint for changing the world – but how? By ending global poverty, safeguarding the planet and aiming for prosperity for all – all by 2030.

In this episode of Amplified, Aoifinn Devitt, Head of Investment – Ireland, is joined by Mitch Reznick, Head of Research and Sustainable Fixed Income, and Hamish Galpin, Head of the SDG Engagement Equity Fund, to delve into the SDGs, in particular looking at how we can weave them into investing.

Hamish says: “The concept of using the SDGs is all about long-term shareholder value creation...sustainability has gone from being something companies ought to consider to something companies really need to consider.”

While Mitch says: “The engagement process and what we try to achieve is for companies to affect positive change in society and the environment which we believe over time will be self-reinforcing for the financial strength of that company.”
