We make the Sustainable Development Goals investable

 

SDG INVESTMENTS® is a matching platform for financial instruments and investment products which contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Professional and institutional investors are able to find sustainable investments on the platform which meet their individual selection criteria. Registration on the platform allows project initiators and issuers of such investments  to obtain access to relevant investors. SDG INVESTMENTS® therefore increases both the transparency and efficiency during the selection and investment process for the growing asset class of sustainable investments.

 

What are the SDGs?

In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the

2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

This resolution sets out the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”):


  • The realisation of these Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 at the latest requires measures in different areas of the world that are crucial for humanity and its planet. UNCTAD estimates that 2.5 trillion USD per annum in private investments is required to achieve the goals. The successful implementation of the SDGs is therefore largely dependent on the following two factors:

    Entrepreneurial action: systematic orientation of projects and financial products to the SDGs.

    Availability of financial resources: investments by private and institutional investors will make a decisive contribution here.

    PROJECTS

    All financial instruments and investment products shown on this platform have one feature in common: They address at least one of the 17 global goals for sustainable development. Before a project or financial instrument is included, an  independent research agency for sustainable investments conducts a plausibility analysis to verify which of the goals are being addressed.

    We ensure that all projects are investable and meet the specific requirements of our registered investors.
