Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations (UN) Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
The SDGs provide a powerful framework for investors looking to achieve impactful, long-term investment results. By investing in our Community Investment Note® or co-lending alongside us in a syndicated facility or small business recovery fund, investors and co-lenders gain access to our portfolio organizations working in a variety of impact sectors. Our work in each of these sectors directly contributes to the SDGs in different ways, and creates positive, measurable impact for people and planet.
Learn more about these global goals on our SDGs page and in the resources below.
