Targeting real world impact aligned with SDGs

02/03/2018

We look at why the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) matter to institutional investors, the role of impact investing in helping to achieve the SDGs and what the global goals mean for the growth and development of the impact investing sector.

The United Nations (UN) put out a strong call to action for the private sector to play a fundamental role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over the next 15 years.

It is still early days for the SDGs, but momentum is growing. Institutional investors not only recognise that the SDGs are a key part of their fiduciary duty, but achieving them offers opportunities for global economic growth that could lead to better investment outcomes for beneficiaries over the long term.

Impact investors are uniquely positioned to take the SDGs forward by channelling private capital towards projects and investments with real world impact aligned with the SDGs. In this piece, Richard Sherry, Director of Alternative Credit, looks at why the SDGs matter to institutional investors, the role of impact investing in helping to achieve the SDGs and what the global goals mean for the growth and development of the impact investing sector.
