On March 21, 2017 NN Investment Partners (NN IP) published a commentary sketching its roadmap for investing in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). The commentary explains:
- The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a solid path to value creation for society and shareholders: investing in a better world while achieving healthy financial returns.
- Not all SDGs are equally investable and reporting on Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) of SDGs is still too limited to rely on for efficient investment purposes
- NN Investment Partners (NN IP) has developed a tagging approach that allows for assessing SDG exposure of companies and for investing according to the SDGs.
- NN IP already applies this approach, and invests in the SDGs through the Global Sustainable Opportunities strategy. The strategy offers investors strong exposure to the SDGs along with company engagement on impact.
