Putting the SDG framework to work

Robeco and its affiliate RobecoSAM have developed a comprehensive, proprietary SDG measurement framework. Using this framework, we can construct credit portfolios that are diversified across issuers and sectors, which make a clear, positive contribution to the SDGs, and which also deliver attractive financial returns for our investors. 

Robeco’s SDG screening can also help reduce downside risks in credit portfolios, as it separates the wheat from the chaff and prevents investors from investing in companies with outmoded business models that have come under severe pressure, or which may be at risk of distress or default.

Robeco currently offers three different SDG Credits funds: RobecoSAM Euro SDG Credits, RobecoSAM Global SDG Credits and RobecoSAM SDG Credits Income. These funds share the same SDG framework described above.
