Our Sustainable Approach

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have been widely adopted and guide our approach to sustainable investing. We use them as a framework to support our investment process and to assess the positive contributions a fund is aiming for.

We have used the UN SDGs to create three main themes, outlined to the right. These may help you to classify your own sustainable priorities. Below is a table explaining each of the UN SDGs. Good governance applies to all the choices – SDGs 16 & 17.

  • Human Needs
    UN Sustainable Development Goals: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 8 / 10
  • Planet & Resources
    UN Sustainable Development Goals: 6 / 12 / 14 / 15
  • Climate
    UN Sustainable Development Goals: 7 / 9 / 11 / 13
