The future for sustainable investment

UNCTAD World Investment Forum 


Sustainable investment market

Capital markets that are aligned with sustainability can be instrumental in financing sustainable development. The past decade has witnessed a surge of sustainability themed financial products in variety, number and assets. UNCTAD estimates the total value of sustainable financial products, in 2022, at $5.8 trillion, up by 12 per cent from 2021. However, UNCTAD analysis shows that not all of this investment is truly sustainable and that alignment with the SDGs remains limited.
