What we focus

The Foundation was launched to promote social impact investment and sustainable procurement according to SDGs. 

Social Impact Investment

The fundamentals of social impact investing recognize that there are many business opportunities in making a social impact during solving social problems, and that there is room for significant social impact as business investments evolve and expand their scale and boundaries. The Foundation will promote social impact investing in strict accordance with the "six principles" and will focus on the following FIVE priority areas.

 

  1. Supporting environment-friendly related industries such as environmental protection and circular economy (environmental protection).

  2. Promoting industries linked to clean energy, energy efficiency and the sustainable development of renewable energy (clean energy).

  3. Related industries that contribute to poverty reduction, poverty alleviation and expansion of employment and income generation for special groups such as ethnic minorities, veterans, female enterprises and persons with disabilities (poverty alleviation and employment).

  4. Education and science-related industries that promote the education of special populations, global knowledge sharing, international cultural exchange and other advances in human civilization (educational exchange).

  5. Fostering innovation and entrepreneurship (high-tech innovation) in exploring future disruptive technologies and models that will advance human progress, such as life sciences, healthcare, artificial intelligence and big data.

Sustainable procurement

"Sustainable Public Procurement has been the focus of the United Nations and the international community in recent years to promote sustainable production, services and consumption, and is an important practice area to promote sustainable development globally. All investment projects, donations, and procurement activities promoted by the Foundation will realize the "best value for money" principle while fully utilize the policy guidance of sustainable development, including three following requirements.

 

  1. Sustainable public procurement requires an emphasis on environmental protection and the promotion of investment, development and production of energy-efficient and environmentally friendly products.

  2. Sustainable public procurement should protect the rights of workers, prohibit labour discrimination, enforce the right to compensation for labour disability, etc..

  3. Sustainable public procurement should adequately support small and medium-sized enterprises, women entrepreneurs, ethnic minorities, the development of less economically developed regions and the protection of vulnerable groups.
