ESG during the investment cycle
Investing behind sustainability megatrends
The United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out a blueprint for a prosperous and sustainable world.
Triton believes that businesses have an important role to play in delivering positive social and environmental change. The SDGs help us to identify and prioritise our ESG activities and demonstrate measurable impact against our goals.
We have aligned our material ESG topics with the SDGs to which Triton and its portfolio companies can make the biggest contribution. These, including relevant SDG targets, are set out below.
Our SDG targets include: 8.4 Improve progressively, through 2030, global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavour to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, 8.7 Take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and 8.8 Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environmental for all workers.
