Financing the Sustainable Development Goals: Impact Investing in Action

Financing the Sustainable Development Goals: Impact Investing in Action

A handful of impact investors have begun to create products, raise capital, and make new investments that directly target progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals, a report from the finds. The report, (28 pages, PDF), found that these investors, going beyond aligning and retroactively mapping impact to the SDGs, proactively target and incorporate the goals at various stages of the investment cycle — sourcing and due diligence, investment selection and structuring, investment management, and exit — making them the central focus. The report presents case studies of four impact investing funds targeting specific SDGs: Blue Like an Orange Sustainable Capital Latin American Fund I, Incofin Investment Management, Mirova’s Land Degradation Neutrality Fund Project, and PGGM Investing in Solutions.
