SDG Impact is situated within the Finance Sector Hub of the United Nations Development Programme. Its mission is to advance a unified, global effort to authenticate SDG-enabling investment by providing investors and businesses the clarity, insights, and tools required to support and authenticate their contribution to achieving the 17 universal UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Rosemary Addis agreed to take on a role as Senior Adviser to the SDG Impact team and Steering Group because of the potential impact of SDG Impact.
The market intelligence will highlight areas where solutions are needed and possible, focusing on areas where SDG related need, policy priority and investment activity overlap. This can grow participation of the private sector in delivering SDG-enabling solutions and investment. The Impact Management dimension will set the bar for SDG-enabling investment and provide concrete guidance on how to operationalise and implement impact investment strategies. SDG Impact Practice Standards backed by a tiered certification framework and SDG Impact Seal will send strong market signals about what good, best and best impact practice looks like, which will build confidence and trust in impact investment and inform progress toward achieving the SDGs.
