Impacts: investment themes and how they map
to the Sustainable Development Goals
The SDGs are an internationally recognised set of goals
to aim for by 2030, which will help the world develop
in a more sustainable way. They replaced the United
Nations’ Millennium Goals and have captured many
investors’ interest as a comprehensive way of thinking
about and reporting on sustainable investing.
Our analysis shows how our themes are aligned with
SDGs by identifying where each one is linked to Key
Performance Indicators (KPI) in the SDG methodology.
We have limited each of our themes to one main SDG,
although there are overlaps and most companies are
exposed to more than one goal.

20 Liontrust Sustainable Future Funds: Annual Review 2017
We have five investment themes aligned with this SDG to
ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all
ages. These include:
Improving auto safety: We have identified companies
whose products improve the safety of travel and reduce
road traffic accidents, principally through active safety,
which involves collision avoidance, active breaking and
semi-autonomous driving.
Delivering healthier foods: We have identified companies
that provide reformulation services to change the recipe of
foods to make them healthier (such as less fat, sugars and
salts) while maintaining the taste. This contributes to KPI
3.4, which is to reduce by one third premature mortality
from non-communicable diseases through prevention
and treatment.
Enabling healthier lifestyles: Companies that promote
healthier lifestyles, principally through increasing activity,
taking exercise and sport help meet the same KPI 3.4.
Providing affordable healthcare globally: Companies
that help to deliver affordable, positive patient outcomes
in managing disease also help achieve this goal.
