How does the Fund support the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Fund's sustainability themes are closely aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By investing in the Domini Sustainable Solutions Fund, your portfolio can help to achieve these goals.

The 17 SDGs form the core of the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which has been universally adopted by the 193 UN Member States. Over the past few years, they have been widely embraced by governments and civil society organizations-as well as a growing number of companies and investors-as a roadmap to spreading peace and prosperity around the globe.

How do we choose companies to invest in?

As with all Domini Funds, the companies held in the Sustainable Solutions Fund must meet Domini's Impact Investment Standards, which are underscored by two fundamental goals: universal human dignity and ecological sustainability.

We conduct extensive social, environmental and financial research and analysis to select companies that we believe have strong investment potential. In evaluating companies for the Fund, we consider a wide range of criteria and look for companies with unique competitive advantages and commitments to innovation, access, diversity, responsible business practices, and more.

How is the Fund managed?

The Fund seeks to provide shareholders with long-term total return by investing in stocks of solution-oriented companies helping to address sustainability challenges. 

The Fund invests in typically fewer than 50 stocks, diversified in size and geography. It may invest globally, including in developed markets across the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, as well as select emerging markets. It pursues a high-conviction, buy-and-hold strategy with an investment horizon of about 3 to 5 years.

As active owners, we also engage with companies to amplify the Fund’s impact. This may include direct dialogue with management teams on specific environmental, social and governance issues. As with all Domini Funds, we also vote company proxies on behalf of the Fund’s shareholders in accordance with our published proxy voting guidelines.
