Analysis: SDG Funds Fail to Target Countries Most in Need

By Natasha Turner

Companies in funds targeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on average sell just 1% of their products and services in countries most in need of sustainable development, Clarity AI research seen exclusively by ESG Clarity has found.

The sustainability data platform looked at different countries’ progress towards the SDGs as laid out in the SDG Index and then compared this with the geographical distribution of revenue in 53 public equity and fixed income SDG funds (those with ‘SDG’ or ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ in their name).
