Invest NYC SDG Initiatve
The Invest NYC SDG Initiative is a two-year project led by NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business with the goal of driving private sector financing of a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient New York City.
In this two-year Initiative, NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business (CSB) will identify opportunities for private sector financing using the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework.
NYU Stern CSB is uniquely positioned to lead an inclusive stakeholder engagement and research initiative that monetizes the size of the prize for business in creating a more sustainable future for the city’s current and future inhabitants. With support from Goldman Sachs Center for Environmental Markets, PepsiCo and New York Community Trust, CSB aims to develop a shared vision with a wide group of stakeholders for how private sector investment can be stimulated in partnership with the public and nongovernmental sectors.
By identifying opportunities for investment in meaningful solutions for issues such as affordable housing, energy efficiency, mobility solutions, waste management, food access, and climate resilience, as well as simultaneously providing jobs and neighborhood revitalization, NYC will be the foremost city at the intersection of business, finance and the UN SDGs.
