The SDG Investor Platform is powered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and created by the SDG Finance initiative SDG Impact, which focuses on generating and leveraging private sector capital in delivering the SDGs. Launched as a “start-up” in September 2018, SDG Impact aims to provide investors, businesses and others with unified standards, tools, and services required to authenticate their contributions to achieving the SDGs and to identify SDG investment opportunities in emerging economies and developing countries.
Building on one of the tools of SDG Impact - the SDG Investor Maps - and leveraging on UNDP’s presence in more than 170 countries and territories, the SDG Investor Platform, established in partnership with the Global Investors for Sustainable Development (GISD) Alliance and with support from the UN Department of Economics and Social Affairs (UN DESA), provides private sector investors with access to country level market intelligence, including on-the-ground insights on local investment landscape and investor connections.
The SDG Investor Platform also offers opportunities for collaboration, including with the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and the UN Global Compact, and guides investors and businesses in delivering impact, including through the SDG Impact Standards and the GISD Navigator.
