There is a Clear Gap in SDG-Driven Investments

Currently, there is a gap in the market between what the SDG goals hope to achieve and the financing behind them. For example, SDG 7, which focuses on ensuring accessible, reliable and sustainable energy for everyone by 2030, requires current investment to rise from $1.7 trillion to $4.25 trillion per year.
