IMPACT

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.

The UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17:

  • calls on parties to "strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development"

  • states that the need to develop multi-stakeholder partnerships to share knowledge, expertise, technology, and financial support is seen as critical to the overall success of the SDGs.

Artesian:

  • leverages our extensive global markets investment experience across the capital structure (from early stage VC to public debt markets) to deliver impact at scale

  • builds collaborative partnerships with complementary, like-minded organisations to deliver sustainable outcomes

  • believes that innovation, with technology as a key facilitator, can have a sustainable deflationary effect on the cost of infrastructure required to address critical global social and environmental issues.

"If impact investing is our rocket ship to social change, impact

measurement is our navigation system"
