Intention . Investment . Impact
29 November 2022 . 10:00 CET
How late are we on meeting the UN SDG’s? What is the investment opportunity? How to improve the Impact Score of our investments?
In this webcast, Fabiana Fedeli, Chief Investment Officer, and our Impact Team will discuss how investors can find truly impactful companies, and the role of the 17 UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) in the impact investing framework. They will answer questions such as:
• Can the world catch up the SDG’s by 2030?
• Have COVID-19 and the Ukraine crisis affected progress against the SDGs?
• How can investors target specific SDGs?
• How is a company’s impact measured?
• What are the challenges faced by impact investors?
What is impact investing?
Impact investing means investing on companies providing intentional, measurable positive impacts against some of the world’s most pressing challenges, while at the same time looking to produce a financial return. The private sector investment is more imperative than ever to help deliver global progress.
