Sustainable Development Goals
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.
LeapFrog has identified six key goals that we aim to address through our own efforts, and in partnership with our portfolio companies.
LeapFrog companies in financial inclusion have disbursed more than $16.4 billion in loans, and paid out more than $670 million in insurance claims; a springboard and a safety-net for people to change their future.
LeapFrog’s healthcare portfolio has delivered more than 23 million high quality pharmaceutical products, including prescription medicines, and more than more than 2 million diagnostic tests and laboratory supplies.
Over 47% of the services delivered across LeapFrog’s portfolio were provided directly to women, and LeapFrog companies collectively reached more than 186 million women and girls.
LeapFrog’s portfolio companies have supported more than 160,000 jobs and livelihoods, including more than 54,000 full-time jobs in emerging economies.
Investments in financial services increase the availability of affordable credit to small-scale industrial and other enterprises. LeapFrog companies have provided more than US$2.6 billion in loans to more than 4.4 million MSMEs.
LeapFrog continues to address systemic inequality, targeting the catalytic areas of financial inclusion and healthcare, reaching 250 million emerging consumers with the tools and services they need to shape their future.
