In 2015 the United Nation created 17 core sustainable development goals (SDGs) to create a visible roadmap of issues that need to be addressed for the long-term prosperity of people and planet. While originally government focused, the UN SDGs have been adopted by companies, investment managers and investors as a map for allocating to impact investments.
UN SGDS • NET-ZERO • IMPACT INVESTING
Private philanthropy and governments fund some of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that 193 countries agreed to work toward by 2030. But there is an estimated $2.5 trillion annual funding shortfall which makes it imperative that private capital be mobilized to address these pressing issues. We believe Citizen Mint can be a conduit in providing access to opportunities that address these items. We hope you’ll join us!
Investment Required to Hit Target
Net zero by the year 2040 (no additional greenhouse gas emissions generated) is the goal for avoiding dire climate change. Getting there will require global commitment and worldwide investment of $1-$2 trillion each year (about 1% to 2% of global GDP), according to estimates by Wellington Investment Management, a leader in climate investing in both public and private markets.
