POSITIVE IMPACT PORTFOLIOS – SPRING 2018 UPDATE
The Positive Impact Portfolios actively select funds that aim to make a positive impact on society and the environment through their investments.
Since 2017 we have been using the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as a way to think about impact. We have mapped the underlying holdings in the portfolios to these goals, and in this update will focus on three examples:
- Goal 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth;
- Goal 9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; and
- Goal 10 – Reduced Inequalities
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.
