You shouldn’t have to give up competitive financial returns to do good.
We assess and measure investments based on their long-term growth fundamentals plus positive contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - a global blueprint for balancing our economic, social and environmental needs.
You can direct your investing power toward building a better, more sustainable future for all while tracking the impact it’s having on achieving goals like SDG 3: Good Health & Well-being, SDG 11: Sustainable Cities & Communities.
Together let’s help shape a positive future for Australia, and our world.
The world's to-do list – as set by the United Nations, agreed to by 193 countries including Australia.

According to the Business & Sustainable Development Commission, achieving the SDGs could open up ~US$12 trillion in business opportunities.
