Impact creation aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals

It takes a shared vision, mutual goals and strong partnerships to succeed in tackling today’s social and environmental challenges. As impact investors with the goal to create lasting value, we align with the United Nations in realizing the Sustainable Development Goals that have been adopted by the UN in September 2015.

We at LGT Impact believe that only as partners we will succeed in tackling today’s most pressing social and environmental challenges. Together with our portfolio companies, we align with and contribute to the achievement of 12 out of 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Goal number 17 - “Partnerships for the Goals” - reflects this attitude that we share and support.

We engage in and encourage partnerships for

  • Mobilization of additional financial resources for developing countries from multiple sources
  • Enhancement of the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communication technologies e.g. the partnership with our investee M-KOPA Solar 
  • Implementation of effective and targeted capacity-building in developing and emerging countries e.g. LGT Impact's local teams, the LGT Impact Fellowship etc.
