Aligning equity investments with the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Presented by

Henk Groot, Detailhandel, Coen Brouwer, BlackRock, Aled Jones, FTSE Russell

About this talk

In September 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which included 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all and they address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Building on the principle of “leaving no one behind”, the 2030 Agenda emphasises a holistic approach to achieving sustainable development for all. Since climate investing is now part of many asset allocation strategy agendas, some investors are looking for solutions that will help them align with the all, or some, of the UN SDGs. During our webinar we will discuss the HOW and WHY SDG investing can be incorporated into an equity portfolio and why climate investing is on the increase. Our expert list of speakers will be: Henk Groot, Head of Investments Pension Funds for the Retailers, Detailhandel Coen Brouwer, Director, BlackRock Aled Jones, Head of Sustainable Investment, EMEA, FTSE Russell
