SDG Credits - winning by not losing?

SDG Credits - winning by not losing?

09-06-2020 | Product webinar
A unique screening approach developed by Robeco in 2018 enables us to invest in the credits of companies that can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Last year, our analysis showed that sectors that were positively aligned with the SDGs had a lower credit risk. Furthermore, sectors with a positive or neutral SDG rating over a five-year period had a superior risk/return relationship compared to those with negative SDG scores.
