Investments with ripple effects

2022 was marked by a number of interlinked crises. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has heightened uncertainty in the global economy and added to pandemic-related problems such as trade disruption and slowing economic growth. This is reinforcing pre-existing challenges in developing countries, such as poverty, food insecurity, inflation and high debt. At the same time, climate change is continuing unabated.

Swedfund's mission is to reduce poverty through sustainable investments in developing countries. We know that every investment we make creates positive ripples, today and for the future. Read more in out Integrated Report 2022.

How we contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals

All stakeholders in society have to take responsibility and an active approach to ensure these goals can be achieved.
