UNEP FI is very pleased to welcome the 21st financial institution to join the Positive Impact Finance Initiative. NAB is one of the four largest financial institutions in Australia and has been actively supporting the growth of the Australian impact investment market, and in particular supporting the transition to a low carbon economy. NAB supports the holistic and collaborative approach enshrined in the Principles for Positive Impact Finance.

“There is a fundamental shift underway to address the global challenges facing us. We know that strong leadership and vision is required to build the necessary infrastructure to support sustainable development and we are looking forward to contributing to the Positive Impact Finance initiative” said Steve Lambert, Executive General Manager Capital Financing, NAB.

The Principles for Positive Impact Finance were launched in Paris on January 30th, 2017, to develop and implement new business models and financing approaches that will help address the estimated $5-7 trillion a year gap in funding the Sustainable Development Goals.
