The SDG 12 Lunch – March 16, 2023
Did you know that 400 million tonnes of plastic waste are produced every year? An incredible one third goes into packaging alone. This is why responsible production & consumption (SDG 12) stand out as one of the primary topics to build a greener future. In addition to the significant environmental & climate implications, impact investors and ventures can also leverage on new regulations and the mega trend towards sustainability. Considering the attractive business opportunities that come with it, not only impact investors jump on circularity and responsible resource management right now. So it’s legitimate to ask: What is the investor additionality of pursuing such a holistic, conscious investing strategy? And how can we avoid the risk of mission drifts?
Our experts Chi Impact Capital and Vytal had a great honest-to-heart discussion with our audience. Stay tuned for the recording to come or check out the LinkedIn post with the key insights!

But do their impact-driven counterparts share the same views, conclusions and expectations? Or are they in for the long run, more committed than ever to drive positive, measurable change? Together with our experts Dr. Antonia Botsari (EIF), Harry Davies (Ceniarth) and Dr. Christin ter Braak-Forstinger (Chi Impact Capital) we had a truly inspiring talk on the future of impact investing that has revealed much more silver linings than doom.
