The SDG Investors Partnership

Promoting investment for sustainable development; targeting institutional investors

The SDG Investors Partnership, initiated by the UNCTAD Investment and Enterprise Division, aims to foster partnerships among institutional investors, governments and international organizations to facilitate institutional investment in key SDG sectors, in particular in developing countries. Its work is guided by the SDG Investors Steering Council.

The Initiative, in partnership with all stakeholders, seeks to create an enabling environment for sustainability-oriented investment by institutional investors through evidence-based research, dissemination of best practices and international standards, consensus building and policy advocacy on strategic issues that are critical for facilitating institutional investment in sustainable development. 

The UNCTAD Investment and Enterprise Division is the focal point in the United Nations System for investment, enterprise and development. Its mission is to promote investment and enterprise for sustainable development and prosperity for all.

Steering council

 The SDG Investors Steering Council comprises high-level executives from leading sovereign and public pension funds, together with representatives of governments and other stakeholders. The Council provides guidance on the strategic direction of the work of the initiative.
