Event description

Description

In 2015, all the member states of the United Nations adopted the SDGs which define the global sustainable development priorities and aspirations for 2030.

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 will therefore organise 3 masterclasses on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in cooperation with asset managers, asset-owners and SDG experts and supported by ABP, Amundi, NN IP and IUCN. The masterclasses are intended for all actors in the field of SDGs and particularly for asset owners and asset managers with SDG ambitions.

The first Masterclass will take place on Thursday the 28th of November.
