...investing in companies that have the explicit aim of addressing a range of societal and environmental issues the world is facing, while giving equal importance to healthy, long-term financial returns.
We focus on six impact areas — three environmental and three social — in conjunction with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. We invest in companies making a material, measurable, positive contribution towards these goals.
