The fund, a joint venture between Amundi and the International Financial Corporation (IFC), closed in March at $1.42 billion. A cooperative arrangement between both public and private sectors, it is in the process of deploying funding for projects. Called the Amundi Planet Emerging Green One (AP EGO)*, it aims to deploy around $2 billion into emerging markets green bonds by the end of its seven-year investment period by reinvesting proceeds.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity
There are 17 goals and among them are clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy and climate action. “The proof of concept has been done through this fund, and it is a robust model that may also be applied to help achieve other climate issues or SDGs,” said Barbéris.
NEW YORK — Over the past few decades, the international community has tasked itself with achieving a wide range of social and environmental objectives, many of which are enshrined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for 2030.
We have advocated for many of these goals, as well as similar efforts that preceded the SDGs, because we believe that such collective projects are necessary to create the type of world we want for our children and grandchildren. But we have also come to realise that far too many efforts to fulfill global commitments lack the meaningful reporting mechanisms needed to succeed. If we are serious about translating lofty pronouncements into real progress for people and the planet, this will have to change.
A report by Social Justice Ireland finds that Ireland ranks 11th out of 15 similar European countries on SDG indicators. The report cautions that Ireland is lagging behind on SDGs 5, 7, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 17. Ireland performed well on SDGs 3, 4 and 6.
IHG have identified the seven Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) where they believe they can have the greatest impact to address some of the world’s biggest challenges and ensure the long-term sustainability and success of their business – from reducing poverty and hunger through economic multiplier effect, to providing quality education via their IHG Academy and decent work to hundreds of thousands of colleagues globally, and combating climate change through the IHG Green Engage system.

According to UN, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has been published for action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. UNDP provides clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large.
Adopted by world leaders in September 2015 officially came into force. On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs, also known as Global Goals, aims to go further to end all forms of poverty which build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and
Without data, we can’t monitor and measure the process. People are talking about data-driven decision making, as Bill Gates said: “Data represent a lot of hard work in countries around the world and we need to zoom in the stories behind the data.”
Working on SDGs is not only the government responsibility, but everyone, including enterprises and public, should pay attention to it. For the sack of human, environment and the earth, we should achieve SDGs together, hand in hand, to build a better world.
This goal is to revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. A successful sustainable development agenda needs partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. Principles and values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the centre, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level were built upon partnerships.
To mobilize, redirect and unlock the transformative power of trillions of dollars of private resources to deliver on sustainable development objectives, we need urgent action. Long-term investments, including foreign direct investment, are needed in critical sectors, especially in developing countries.
Sustainable energy, infrastructure and transport, as well as information and communications technologies are needed. The public sector will need to set a clear direction. Review and monitoring frameworks, regulations and incentive structures that enable such investments must be retooled to attract investments and reinforce sustainable development. National oversight mechanisms such as supreme audit institutions and oversight functions by legislatures should be strengthened.
Here are some of the details of SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals according to the United Nations.
By 2020, enhance capacity-building support to developing countries, including for least developed countries and small island developing States, to increase significantly the availability of high-quality, timely and reliable data disaggregated by income, gender, age, race, ethnicity, migratory status, disability, geographic location and other characteristics relevant in national contexts
By 2030, build on existing initiatives to develop measurements of progress on sustainable development that complement gross domestic product, and support statistical capacity-building in developing countries
Enhance North-South, South-South and triangular regional and international cooperation on and access to science, technology and innovation and enhance knowledge sharing on mutually agreed terms, including through improved coordination among existing mechanisms, in particular at the United Nations level, and through a global technology facilitation mechanism
Promote the development, transfer, dissemination and diffusion of environmentally sound technologies to developing countries on favourable terms, including on concessional and preferential terms, as mutually agreed
Fully operationalize the technology bank and science, technology and innovation capacity-building mechanism for least developed countries by 2017 and enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology
