Liontrust GF SF European Corporate Bond Impact Report Q2 2020 - Flipbook - Page 5
Alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals
This analysis shows how the Sustainable investment
themes are linked to the United Nations Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs).
All of the Sustainable investment themes are linked to SDGs and
the underlying Key Performance Indicator they relate to have been
identified in the SDG text. A more detailed discussion on impact
and how the Sustainable investment themes are aligned with the
SDG’s is available in the SF Annual Review 2019 on pages 2028: www.liontrust.co.uk/sustainable
The fund has most exposure to SDG 8: Decent work & economic
growth (38.2%); SDG 9: Industry, innovation & infrastructure
(15.8%); SDG 7: Affordable & clean energy (15.6%); and SDG 3:
Good health and wellbeing (8.4%)
Whilst our methodology is to assign what we believe to be the most
prevalent SDG or the SDG that the company has the most impact
on, we believe that the companies we have exposure to can have
an impact on multiple SDGs.
For example many of holdings to the Banking industry come under SDG
8: Decent work and economic growth as we believe that through the
banks lending practices they facilitate economic growth. However,
given several of the banks we own have exposure to retail (mortgage),
they could therefore be classified or have positive impact on SDG 11:
Sustainable cities and communities. The fund has direct and significant
exposure to 8 of the 17 UN SDGs.
