The Sustainable Development Goals have created a framework that shows how economic growth is crucial in reducing poverty and improving the quality of life in the developing world. At the same time, the effects of climate change are already being felt, while the environmental burden of feeding growing populations will only increase. How can investors contribute to the fight to reduce carbon emissions, and promote development in low-incomecountries? How can investments improve food security and safeguard the environment?
