Liontrust Monthly Income Bond Impact Report Q2 2020 - Page 5



Alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals
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.
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.
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 20-28: www.liontrust.co.uk/sustainable
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 most exposure to SDG 8: Decent work & economic
growth (49%); SDG 9: Industry, innovation & infrastructure (17%);
SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities (12%) and SDG 7:
Affordable & clean energy (9%)
The fund has direct and significant exposure to 5 of the 17 UN SDGs.
