Sustainable tech strategy

Leveraging our partnership with Icehouse Ventures, SDG Impact Sustainable Tech Strategy invests in high-growth circular economy opportunities in New Zealand

Early stage ventures tackling circular economy challenges from New Zealand but for the world

In partnership with Icehouse Ventures, a New Zealand early stage venture fund, we have launched a sustainable technology strategy that is investing in high-growth sustainable tech of all sorts, including clean energy solutions, alternatives to plastics, e-waste processing, and others.

New Zealand has a vibrant sustainable tech ecosystem, and we aim to scale these companies in Japan and around the world.

This has been designed in accordance with UNDP’s new SDG Impact Standards for funds.
