The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios invest in companies that are making a positive impact on society and the environment by providing 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 relating to:

  • Goal 4 – quality education: ensuring access to high-quality science
  • Goal 7 – affordable & clean energy: lighting the road to smart cities and sustainability
  • Goal 9 – industry, innovation and infrastructure: helping Africa tackle its digital divide

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.
