Social Impact Investing - Quality Jobs Investment Strategies to achieve a cross-SDG impact

This input paper, prepared by the ILO for the Sustainable Finance Working Group under the Indian presidency, emphasizes the benefits of social impact investing that supports decent work and quality jobs creation for achieving a multi-dimensional impact on the SDGs. Quality Jobs Investment Strategies, presented in the input paper, were developed by the Global Impact Investing Network in collaboration with the ILO and a group of impact investors. These strategies are an example of impact investing approaches that can be successfully replicated by a broader group of financial decision makers, elevating the financial sector’s contribution to the SDGs.
