The 17 sustainability goals in the UN Agenda 2030 are important starting points in Swedbank Robur's pursuit of contributing to a long-term sustainable world. For example, Swedbank Robur has launched a new equity fund, Swedbank Robur Global Impact, which only invests in companies that contribute to achieving the UN's sustainability goals in various ways.
