Sustainable Finance Collective Asia (SFC Asia)

An innovative and collaborative funding platform formed by UNDP Social Impact Fund, ING Bank, Credit Suisse and the FMO, the Dutch development bank and technical, social and environmental impact, and legal experts.  We aim to support funding proposals in three broad sustainability themes – Circular Economy, Sustainable Energy and Social Impact.


We are in the process of structuring three funds from USD100m to USD500m focusing on the following SDG-aligned areas of investment:

    No Poverty (SDG 1)
    Zero Hunger (SDG 2)
    Clean Water & Sanitation (SDG 6)
    Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7)
    Industry Innovation & Infrastructure (SDG 9)
    Sustainable Cities & Communities (SDG 11)
    Sustainable Consumption and Production (SDG 12)
    Climate Action (SDG 13)

We are also very interested in next-generation technology proposals that support the SDGs including Internet of Things (IoT and Internet+), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), Robotics/Bionics, Material Sciences, etc..

If accepted, UNDP SIF will offer a combination of the following support:

Grants – A financial award with no expected compensation over a fixed period of time
Debt – Money lent for repayment at a later date, usually with interest (Market or Concessional)
Equity – Ownership in a company – value determined at time of investment
Guarantees – Protection from various forms of risk intended against capital losses for investors
