By investing in companies that are listening to our influence in implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we believe it is more likely to lead to outcomes that benefit investors, businesses and society.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals, targets and indicators for global development. There are 17 SDGs, and within these goals there are 169 targets and 230 indicators, which seek to realise the human rights of all and achieve gender equality, among other issues. They serve as a blueprint for significantly changing the world – by ending global poverty, safeguarding the planet and aiming for prosperity for all – by 2030. Established by the UN in September 2015, the SDGs were adopted by the international community, including 193 governments.
