Delivering real world positive impact alongside financial returns
Sustainable development requires a vast amount of funding per annum, of which there is currently a shortfall. An estimated $2.1 trillion is needed to achieve the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals in emerging market economies by 2030 in the areas of education, health, electricity, roads, water & sanitation, for instance. To achieve net zero emissions by 2050 requires approximately $4 trillion in clean energy transition-related investment per year. Impact Investing, by mobilising capital towards projects that address these societal challenges, bridges this gap and avails a credible means to advancing a sustainable future in a just and inclusive way.
