How to Mobilize the Trillions

Thursday, 07.03.2019 – Thursday, 07.03.2019


The Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. Yet, the financing requirements is estimated to be at least USD1.4 trillion per year in the coming years, which cannot be covered by state budgets alone. Only the investment market can mobilize funding on this scale. Impact and development investment challenge the long held views that social and environmental issues should be addressed only by philanthropy, and that market investments should focus exclusively on achieving financial returns. A panel of experts explores the mechanisms financing the Sustainable Development Goals, how investors are monitoring and evaluating them, and how Hong Kong positions itself in this growing landscape to capture the opportunities.
