We want to make an active contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Among other things, the focus is on combating climate change. To achieve this, net emissions must be reduced to zero. We actively support this goal in all our business areas - on the investment side, as well as in advising our clients and in operations.
We consider it our duty to be mindful of the social and environmental consequences of our business activities and act accordingly. Our operational processes are designed to conserve natural resources as much as possible. We are going one step further by 2030, by pledging to reduce our emissions to net zero. To achieve this, we have to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions, energy consumption and paper consumption. What we aim to achieve, among other things (* per full-time position):
less paper consumption*
Use of renewable energies
LGT is stepping up its efforts to protect the climate. For our owners, sustainable and long-term oriented action has always been an intrinsic aspect of entrepreneurial activity. We also want to take advantage of the opportunities for our clients and for our company that arise from a consistent focus on sustainability in our business and, above all, in our investments. That is why the net-zero target is a core component of our Sustainability Strategy 2030.
We produce regular research on key sustainable investing themes and trends as well as insights into how we incorporate sustainability into our own business. Head to our publications page to find out more.
