Sustainable Development Goals will help to address most pressing global issues

An overwhelming majority (91%) of investors in alternatives believe that the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will help the financial industry address pressing environmental and social issues. A quarter of them already integrate the SDGs into their investment activities in some way, while another 40% plan to do so within the next two years.

From ESG to SDGs - the methodology

LGT Capital Partners surveyed over 200 investors in alternatives (including pension funds, endowments and insurers from 28 countries). The survey assesses how investors integrate ESG into their investment activities, their views on the SDGs, and their requirements for greater ESG integration in the future.

"SDGs support outcome-orientation"

"91% of investors believe the SDGs will help the financial industry to address pressing environmental and social issues. As such, investors are increasingly turning to the SDGs to make their ESG and sustainable investment activities more outcome-oriented. The SDGs broaden the ESG scope from risk management to value creation in financial, natural and social capital."
