Responsible investment

UN Global Development Goals

On September 25, 2015, all 19 UN member states voted in favor of the new global development goals. The targets came into force in January 2016 and apply to all countries of the world. The goals thus replaced the eight Millennium Goals.
The Global Goals are the most ambitious agenda for sustainable development that the world's countries have ever adopted, and are there to achieve four fantastic things by the year 2030: Abolishing extreme poverty. To reduce inequalities and injustices in the world. To promote peace and justice. To solve the climate crisis.

The Global Defense & Security Fund makes it possible to invest sustainably and ethically with responsible investments.

The 17 global development goals apply from January 2016 to 2030. Under these goals there are 169 sub-goals.

Objective 16: Peaceful and inclusive communities

Peaceful communities and freedom from violence are both a goal and a means of sustainable development. Inclusive, responsible and fair institutions are the basis for good governance in conflict free from conflicts, corruption and violence. All people are equal before the law and should have equal access to justice and opportunities to exercise influence and accountability over decision making.
No lasting progress can be achieved in a context of conflict and violence. Violence not only involves human suffering, it also destroys the foundations of society's economic, environmental and social development. The countries affected by war and prolonged conflicts are the countries that have the most difficulty lifting their population out of poverty.

Strengthening the rule of law and promoting human rights are key to peaceful, inclusive and sustainable societies.
