About the Centre for Impact Investing and Practices
The Centre for Impact Investing and Practices (“CIIP”) fosters the growth of impact investing and practices in Asia and beyond by building and sharing knowledge, bringing together stakeholders in the community, and bringing about positive action that accelerates the adoption of impact investing. Based in Singapore, CIIP was established in 2022 as a non-profit centre by Temasek Trust, a steward of philanthropic endowments and gifts.
To achieve a sustainable future for all mankind, the world needs companies that can drive positive changes at scale through products and services. Impact investing can spur the growth of such companies and help advance solutions to address the challenges that the world faces today. We believe that sustainable companies are those who pursue social and environmental impact as avidly as they pursue profits and shareholder value. By striving to generate positive and measurable social and environmental returns alongside a financial return, both impact investors and companies can achieve returns with purpose.
We are SDG Impact’s anchor partner for Asia. SDG Impact is the United Nations Development Programme initiative tasked to develop resources that accelerate investments towards achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
