As intern of the Responsible Investment Team, you will be working on a Sustainable Development Goals Assignment. PGGM seeks to quantify the impact of its investments on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In order to standardise impact indicators, measurement methodologies and data, it leads the working group on SDG impact Measurement which is part of the Dutch Central Bank’s Sustainable Finance Platform. After proposing a core set of impact indicators in 2018 the working group is currently preparing overviews (‘two-pagers) per SDG on available methodologies, data and examples. 


During the internship, it will be your tasks to (help) complete 17 two-pagers according to a draft outline and format. This includes a ‘mapping’ of SDG measurement methodologies, data and examples onto the logical model (inputs à activities à outputs/outcomes à impact), as well as a brief discussion of their respective strengths and limitations. The draft outline also includes a section for the evaluation of actual companies’ SDG impact reports.


Whereas you can work from home, you will closely coordinate with and report to Piet Klop of PGGM’s Responsible Investment Team to ensure that two-pagers will be completed in good time for PGGM and discussion by the SDG working group and others.
