Our impact targets
We believe that investments should have positive socio-economic and environmental impact, in addition to a financial return. As an impact investment company, we select and invest in projects that mitigate climate change and support attainment of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. We track this impact on an ongoing basis across our entire portfolio.
By 2030, we aim to achieve the following:
Reduced time spent on unpaid domestic work by women
Produce 585 Gwh per year of renewable energy
Create 20,000 new direct and indirect jobs
Avoid 320,000 tons of carbon emissions per year
Unlock $500 million in investments
