Responsible Investing


Renalco and Kepler Cheuvreux Solutions have partnered for the elaboration of investment analysis and identification of investment opportunities centred on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as defined by the United Nations.

Investors sensitive to this theme can benefit from a methodology that provides a structured framework along clearly defined sustainability goals. This methodology empowers investors by enabling specific investment vehicles to be evaluated against these goals.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Planned Target



The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global objectives established by the United Nations in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Each goal aims to solve global problems, whether social (such as poverty and inequality), environmental (climate change and environmental degradation) or governance-related (peace and social justice).

While these objectives appear to be interconnected, they must all be achieved in a specific way. Governments must act urgently, given that there are less than 10 years left to achieve them.


The SDGs are of paramount importance as they provide a global action plan to transform our world towards a more sustainable and equitable future. Achieving the SDGs is essential to reducing economic and social disparities, promoting peace and justice, protecting the environment and ensuring prosperity for future generations.

The SDGs also offer economic opportunities, by stimulating innovation, creating sustainable jobs and opening up new markets in sectors such as renewable energies, health and clean technologies.

An initial estimate by the United Nations suggested that implementing the SDGs would require between 5,000 and 7,000 billion dollars per year worldwide.


Companies, financial institutions and investors are increasingly aware of the importance of integrating ESG criteria into their investment decisions. The SDGs provide a roadmap for identifying investment opportunities that contribute to achieving global goals while generating long-term financial returns.

Investments in sectors such as renewable energy, sustainable infrastructure and healthcare can not only help achieve the SDGs, but also offer benefits to investors, such as reduced risk, improved corporate reputation and new revenue streams.
