On February 24, Qontigo and Responsible Investor hosted a webinar to discuss the state of play in Europe’s ESG fund labeling landscape.

Sustainable investing strategies vary. Some investors, for example, simply want to improve ESG alignment. Others seek to maximize their impact on society, by investing in those companies that contribute the most to certain goals. While the metrics that underlie these approaches have some overlap, there is not perfect correlation, in terms of how metrics are defined, how portfolios are constructed, what is being targeted, etc.
In this post we employed a “fact-finding” approach to examine the issue of how much exposure to a single SDG a portfolio can potentially achieve, and how that exposure is related to active risk. For this analysis we used the Axioma Worldwide Fundamental Equity Factor Risk Model – Medium-Horizon and the SDG contribution from the SDI AOP data as of July 1, 2021.
