A big part of the SDG story is scale, and we need to speed up!

“A big part of the SDG story is scale. We need to significantly speed up implementation to make progress by the goals’ target date of 2030." (SDG Impact)

A huge amount of work is being done to mobilise investment towards the UN SDGs. An estimated US$12 trillion is needed to achieve the SDGs. This capital exists, but it is not being allocated in areas needed most or in ways to maximise impact.

That is why the UN Development Programme (UNDP) established the SDG Impact to provide guidance on how companies and investors evaluate and report on their commitments to the SDGs. The objective is to usher $1 trillion of private investment capital into agriculture, cities, energy and health to achieve the goals.

... and if we can, achieving the SDGs is estimated to create US$12 trillion in new market opportunities and 380 million new jobs.
