ShareAction exists to make investment a force for good. Our vision is of an investment system that truly serves savers and communities, and protects our environment for the long term.

We’re working towards a system in which long-term thinking is recognised as the best way to guarantee healthy returns. We believe that anyone can play a part in changing the investment system for good.

ShareAction work with investors, policy makers and members of the public to encourage institutional investors to integrate environmental, social and governance issues into their investment decisions, and create positive and sustainable outcomes through investment.

ShareAction and the Sustainable Development Goals

ShareAction is working with institutional investors to encourage them to support the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2016 we surveyed institutional investors from around the world about their views on the Sustainable Development Goals, the opportunities offered by the Goals, and the barriers they faced to supporting the Goals. We have used the information gathered in this survey to work with other organisations to help institutional investors to support the Sustainable Development Goals

Our report Transforming Our World Through Investment highlights the salient findings from this work.
