Reading time: 2 min.

Last time we showed you how you can invest in the fourth area – Partnership – and introduced you to three companies within this area, which were IC Group A/S, H & M | Hennes & Mauritz AB & Husqvarna

There are still more areas and companies to explore, which leads us to our fifth area – Justice. The companies mentioned in this blog are all participants of United Nations Global Compact, whose mission is to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want.

Our chosen three companies serves as examples of companies who support the SDG within the area of Justice and our aim with this blog is to visualize how a possible impact investment can be made, allowing you to put your money where your heart is.

JUSTICE

The fifth area – Justice – consists of SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).

Without justice, the hope of a sustainable world will be difficult to fulfill. Justice is when there is peace, everyone is treated fairly and there is a law to protect people. In many countries this is a goal that is still being aimed for, while in other countries there has been a sustained level of stability and peace. But why is it so difficult for some countries to achieve a peaceful stability that other countries have been enjoying for years?

When sexual violence, war and social insecurity is part of your everyday life, any positive development will be a far reach. This is what the SDGs aim to change. Strengthening the rule of law, promoting human rights and making developing countries active participants in the institutions of global governance, is the beginning of achieving a peaceful world.
