Community Investment to Advance UN SDGs

As impact-driven financial institutions, community development financial institutions offer investors an option to align their capital with the social, environmental and economic well-being of American communities through investment in specialized bond products. This virtual panel will provide an overview of the CDFI industry and their experience issuing social and sustainability bonds that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Panelists from Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF) and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) will walk-through the motivation for and development of their social and sustainability bond frameworks, followed by an overview of the second party opinion process and framework verification process by Vigeo Eiris and a discussion of emerging opportunities for growth of the CDFI impact bond market to accelerate investment in the UN SDGs.
