The world is facing major environmental, societal, technological and political challenges. We must all fulfil our social and corporate responsibilities and contribute to a livable future.
We believe that companies wishing to achieve long-term success should consider their impact on the environment and society. The financial sector can and must play an integral part in the global transition towards a more sustainable future. As an investor and investment adviser for capital allocation, we know the important role of the financial markets. However, our responsibility extends beyond that; we must also ensure our business activities have a positive impact.
In 2015, the United Nations (UN) devised the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) in order to "achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." Through the LGT Sustainability Strategy 2025, we have identified the eight UN SDGs that we believe we can make a meaningful and active contribution to. These eight are shown here.
