SDG INVESTMENTS GmbH was founded in September 2017 as a spin-off from AHP Capital Management GmbH. At this point AHP Capital Management GmbH already structured several investment products with a sustainability focus. The implementation of the SDG INVESTMENTS® Platform was a logical next step in order to bridge the gap between investors seeking sustainable investments and project initiators seeking funding.
Our goal is to establish SDG INVESTMENTS® as a leading matching platform for projects and investments which use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a common standard.
To ensure that all projects on the SDG INVESTMENTS® platform are strictly SDG relevant we apply a dual approach. In addition to a financial feasibility analysis our selection process includes an assessment of the SDG impact undertaken by the research agency imug Beratungsgesellschaft für sozial-ökologische Innovationen mbH.
