Context Masterclasses SDGs
On September 25th 2015, all the member states of the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which define the global sustainable development priorities and aspirations for 2030. This sustainable development agenda contains 17 goals with specific targets and commit countries to address the root causes of poverty, increase economic growth and prosperity for all, within the boundaries of the planet.
While the SDGs have been agreed upon by all governments, their success relies on action and collaboration by all actors; governments, businesses, civil society and investors. The SDGs offer investment opportunities, and challenges to the investment community.
The VBDO therefore organises three masterclasses on the SDGs in co-operation with asset managers, asset-owners and SDG experts. The masterclasses are intended for all actors in the field of SDGs and particularly for asset owners and asset managers with SDG ambitions.
