SDG-focused credit fund.
Despite the great level of attention and the best of intentions, the shortage in annual financing for developing countries to achieve the SDGs by 2030 has risen by USD 1.7 trillion in 2020, according to the OECD. This shortfall comes on top of the existing gap of USD 2.5 trillion annually.
We need to go from ‘billions to trillions’ to meet the SDGs and end poverty, protect our planet and livelihoods. This is only possible if institutional investors invest in the SDGs at scale. It would require a shift of only 3.7% of the USD 100 trillion of assets held globally by institutional investors to close this gap, according to the OECD.
