Companies and investors are increasingly working together to address major global challenges. We at Invest Islands promote an “impact investing” approach, whereby the intention of the investment is to not only generate a financial return, but also produce a positive social and environmental impact too.
The Five-Pillar Framework for Sustainable Investment
Our team has identified a five-pillar framework for sustainable international investment that underpins our mission and approach.
The five-pillar framework orients our work and provides the company with guidance on how to conduct our business.
This approach has been developed through research, advisory projects, and stakeholder dialogue with policymakers, corporate executives, multilateral and donor organisations, civil society, and local communities. We consider it to be a “living framework”.
Indonesia will become the first Asian country to sell “green” bonds internationally as it looks to tap into growing investor interest in climate-friendly investments.
Indonesia is marketing a 10-year “sukuk” bond at the same time as the green deal. Initial price guidance sent to investors suggests the five-year green bonds would carry a coupon of 4.05 percent and the 10-year notes, 4.70 percent.
Indonesia grew into a mission to create Southeast Asia’s largest ecotourism development. Along the Alas Strait, between Lombok and Sumbawa, East Indonesia, EcoRegions Indonesia is creating two large scale eco-focused areas that embrace more than 1,000 hectares of land and 20,000 hectares of water teeming with biodiversity.
EcoRegions is being designed as a large-scale platform and a home-base for green entrepreneurs as well as private organisations and individuals interested in living and/or investing in an eco-environment.
