Investors increasingly want to make a positive impact on society while also generating attractive investment returns. Robeco’s Global SDG Engagement Equities fund combines active management with active ownership of companies that have the willingness and potential to substantially improve their contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals. It focuses on engagement with every investee company to improve their contributions, for example through dialogue with a pharma company to provide more affordable medicines in emerging markets.
