SDG Impact Evaluation

Loan Portfolios tend to be very diverse, which makes it difficult to identify the key SDGs that a Financial Institution (FI) contributes to achieving. The reason for this is the lack of data to allocate an SDG contribution quantitatively, systematically, and nationwide for an overall portfolio. MACS has developed an SDG Evaluation tool that enables Financial Institutions to quantitatively measure and characterize their contribution towards achieving the goals. The methodology is based on an evaluation of over 100 economic sectors against their contribution to achieve the around 170 SDGs targets, considering the relevance of the respective targets for a specific country, based on the strengths and weaknesses of each country on the path towards SDGs accomplishment.
