DVFA Sustainable Investing Commission | SDG Impact Measurement – A Brief Overview of Providers, Methodologies, Data and Output
The 2030 agenda for sustainable development, set in 2015, introduced the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nation. Though the SDGs were meant to be adapted on a country level, we believe that the SDGs are an important milestone in effective sustainable investing. As more and more investors are referring to the SDGs as a framework on measuring positive impact. Thus, the SDGs can be seen as helping to shift the focus of market participants and academics towards purpose and positive impact of investments, whereas the implementation of ESG considerations has been considered so far more as prudent risk management.
