Sustainable Development Goals

LeapFrog is proud to be an industry leader in impact measurement and management.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals set out a plan for every industry, from private enterprise, to governments and civil society, to build a more just and equal world by 2030.

LeapFrog adheres to, and measures its performance against these goals, working with our portfolio companies and investors to build understanding and awareness and to ensure that we are all playing our part in driving sustainable impact at global scale.
