Positive Impact Portfolios – February 2019
The Positive Impact Portfolios invest in funds that are making a positive impact on society and the environment by investing in companies that provide solutions to real world problems. We use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a way to map this impact of their products and services.
Our quarterly updates feature examples of these companies and funds –here we will focus on three examples relating to:
- Goal 7 – affordable and clean energy
- Goal 10 – reduced inequalities
- Goal 12 – responsible consumption and production
The United Nations’ Global Goals were adopted in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 Goals provide a holistic framework for action around the most critical issues for society and for our planet.
