The clock is ticking: only 9 years left to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals!
In 2015, the United Nations developed the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, holding at its core the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals encourage countries to have a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and our planet.
In order to meet the UN SDGS by 2030, a large amount of capital is needed, and according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), there is an immense $2.5 trillion funding gap that needs to be filled for developing countries alone.
Rest assured, #teamclearskies firmly believes that bridging this gap is possible. By impact investing, investors have the potential to align their investments with SDGs. Financing sources that can help bridge this gap include Multilateral Development Banks, private sector investments, sustainable bonds and SDG-Themed ETFs, among others.
How can YOU help us accelerate the progress towards achieving these SDGs ?
