ISS ESG Foreword Podcast: Aligning ESG Investing with the SDGs

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, establishes a commitment to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) covering a range of issues including water, health, poverty, biodiversity and climate. Since 2016, ISS ESG has referenced the SDGs as a guideline to measure sustainability – first through the SDG Solutions Assessment, and most recently, via the SDG Impact Rating and SDG Index Series.

This latest episode of ISS ESG Foreword explores how and why investors are integrating the SDGs into their investment decision-making practices as well as how ISS ESG can support those efforts. Tune in to hear from ESG experts Laura Albarracin and Hernando Cortina as they dive into two fresh offerings by ISS ESG: the SDG Impact Rating and the SDG Index Series.
