We provide capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges:
One in ten people in developing economies still live under the international poverty line of USD 1.90 a day. Over 1 billion people live without access to basic products and services and over 730 million new jobs are required to absorb the increase in the world’s working-age population. Furthermore, 80% of CO2 emissions reduction is needed in order to keep global warming below the 2° threshold.
PG Impact Investments believes a holistic approach is necessary to address these challenges, supporting market-based solutions that (i) provide access to basic products and services, (ii) create jobs and economic growth, while (iii) tackling climate change and protecting the environment.
Our social impact strategies seek to achieve theose goals by investing across various impact themes including financial inclusion, affordable housing, energy access, food/agriculture, healthcare, education and small and medium enterprise (SME) growth/job creation opportunities. These strategies aim to optimize social impact while ensuring the overall environmental impact is positive.
