On-demand Webinar: Measuring contribution to UN Sustainable Development Goals

Listen to Dr. Svetlana Borovkova discuss the mapping of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) variables to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), so that a portfolio's contribution towards these goals can be measured and improved. This is an important current issue, as many asset managers struggle with defining and implementing their own sustainability criteria in their investment process. 

In this webinar Dr. Svetlana Borovkova discussed how:

  • Portfolios can be scored in relation to several specific SDGs and how these portfolios compare, in terms of SDGs contributions, to the main benchmarks such as S&P 500 and STOXX 600.
  • Portfolios can be improved in terms of SDGs without significantly changing their performance in terms of return, variance or diversification.
