Sustainable Finance is the capital required to tackle climate change and to deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Over the next 15 years it is estimated that the world will need to invest around US$90 trillion in sustainable infrastructure assets, while nationally it is estimated that our transition to a low carbon economy will be in excess of €40 billion. There is now an urgent need to enhance the ability of the financial system to mobilise private capital for sustainable investment as it is not possible for public funds alone to fund this transition.
Sustainable Nation Ireland has a mandate from the Irish Department of Finance under its International Financial Services (IFS) 2020 strategy to raise awareness of the Sustainable & Responsible Investment (SRI) agenda and to promote and position Ireland as an international hub for Green Finance. Our two initiatives to deliver on this mandate are SIF Ireland and Finance Green Ireland.
