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 – using technology to deliver personalised lifelong learning
- Goal 9: Industry, innovation & infrastructure – constructing green buildings with 3D modelling software
- Goal 11: Sustainable cities & communities – tackling the under-supply of social housing in the UK.
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.
