Introduction: SDGs and Impact Investing

To address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), approximately 4 trillion USD is needed by 2030. Only 1.4 trillion USD is available for investment over that span. How can we fill this 2.6 trillion USD gap?

Impact investing receives lots of attention as a potential answer, because it can create social impact while generating financial returns, which can then be used to achieve even longer, bigger impacts.
