Initiative 5: SDG Investment Forum
Building on the work of the UN Global Compact sustainable finance program and the Sustainable Stock Exchange initiative, the UN Global Compact and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) are organizing a series of regional SDG Investment Forums in 2020 to enhance dialogue at the local level between investors, companies and policymakers on investments to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Discussions will explore how investors, financial institutions and companies are looking at SDG aligned investments and what they see as the unique challenges and opportunities in markets around the world
The Forum will also highlight the roles of stock exchanges, banks, development finance institutions, financial regulators, and other enablers to facilitate SDG investments in the local context
