The SDG Engagement Equity Fund uses SDGs to provide a framework for engaging to create more impactful and financially successful companies. The fund aims to increase the value of fund investments over the long term alongside achieving positive societal impact aligned to the UN SDGs. We believe there are compelling opportunities to create such change and long term value among small and medium sized businesses, many of which are not typical engagement targets of either shareholders or NGOs, yet whose operations and supply chains provide rich potential for improvement and the direct access required for successful engagement. Small and mid-cap companies are largely unaccustomed to being engaged on sustainability matters. Yet these businesses, along with their supply chains, have significant potential to create positive societal impacts and strong investment returns. Engagement has the potential to unlock value for all stakeholders -- investors, companies, employees, local communities and the planet -- and therefore help deliver the ambitious SDGs.
