Sustainable Links was established by a group of entrepreneurial and agile women with deep knowledge and experience of developing economies across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and careers spanning finance, investments and sustainable development. Our objective is to mobilise and deploy climate finance with a gender lens, linking global capital to local climate solutions.
Sustainable Links aims to extend direct sustainability-linked debt capital for:
- middle market companies in East and Southern Africa, looking to move towards a net zero pathway and build resilience to the impacts of climate change, prioritising the manufacturing, agriculture and real estate industries; and
- providers of climate solutions for a low carbon economy, which enable companies to embark on their climate mitigation and adaptation journeys.
We will initially start with five countries in East Africa, that are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change; Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania & Malawi; aligning our investment approach to the ambitions of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement, and localising “best in class” impact investing frameworks.
