Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Impact Investing

The Global Impact Investing Network September 8, 2017

Special update featured below:

The GIIN recognizes the importance of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a global agenda to end poverty by 2030 – and the unique role that impact investing will play in achieving these goals and building a sustainable future.

That is why the GIIN launched a campaign in September 2016, calling for investors to direct more capital to the SDGs. More about this call to action can be found in Amit Bouri’s Op-Ed in Institutional Investor, as well as his latest piece in Pensions & Investments, Commentary: Driving capital to impact investing with an eye on 2030.

PLUS: Amit Bouri recently interviewed GIIN Board Member Christine Bosse about the SDGs, how investors relate to them, and ultimately how there is a greater need in the private sector for more long-term thinking and action plans to harness the power of their investments to address the SDGs. Check out the interview here >

As part of the GIIN’s SDG campaign, the GIIN profiled a variety of impact investors in September 2016, to better understand how they are approaching the SDGs and how this growing community can collectively drive results.

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Impact Investing is a series of profiles that demonstrate how impact investors have begun to utilize the SDG framework to address a variety of global issues such as access to clean water, improving health and well-being, climate change mitigation, and more.

View these profiles to explore how and why impact investors are aligning to the SDGs >

More data about impact investors’ alignment with the SDGs can be found in the GIIN’s 2017 Annual Impact Investor Survey >
