There was a lot of discussion and heightened interest in 2017 by institutional investors looking to align their investments with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a collection of 17 global goals adopted by the United Nations in late 2015. The broad goals are interrelated, covering a range of social and economic development issues, though each has its own targets to achieve by 2030. Objectives include targeting poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water sanitation, energy, environment, and social justice.1
Many of our impact themes at CCM align with the SDG themes. The pie chart and table below depict the mapping of CCM’s impact themes with those of the SDGs. While we can’t directly map to every SDG given our impact investing focus, we continuously look for ways to align our clients’ impact goals for meaningful and lasting change. In the future, we will continue to report our contributions to help advance these goals to which we are most strongly aligned.
