INVEST IN MEANINGFUL IDEAS
WHO WE ARE
Ukrainian Sustainable Fund is a special investment promotion platform aimed at accelerating Ukraine’s energy transition and sustainability.
By applying a variety of investment approaches, we scale up sustainable finance flow to Ukraine, help deliver the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals, as well as reduce CO2 emissions in Ukraine. This allows us to generate long-term, sustainable returns for investors and create social impact.
Dedicated, self-fulfilled professionals who have already achieved a high level in their professional and political careers and are now decided to implement
their big idea while scaling impact on ecological, economic, and social life.
The UASIF is set to support environmentally-friendly businesses, such as wind farms, green transport, solar photovoltaic, small hydro projects, biomass installations, clean water, and energy storage technologies.
We also invest time and recourses into strategic development of state-of-the-art types of clean energy such as hydrogen, small nuclear, and LNG.
Our strategy is to tunnel and scale up sustainable finance in Ukraine, where we have a lack of debt, equity, and blended ‘green’ funds. We bridge the gap between sustainable projects and leading international green financial hub by attracting investors, international climate finance accelerators, and green stock exchanges.
In doing so, UASIF takes a variety of investment and communication approaches. We take into account environmental and social factors, focusing on the projects with long-term, sustainable returns for investors.
We are looking into the future of energy development in Ukraine, searching for alternative sources of fuel, and designing methods of those methods’ application in our country. We believe that renewable, hydrogen, small nuclear, and LNG technologies will be the future of Ukrainian energy.
In the past five years, Ukraine has set ambitious goals in the field of sustainable energy development. Firstly, in 2014, we signed the Association Agreement with the EU, taking the responsibility to generate 11% of total electricity from RES by 2020. Next, in 2017, the government has adopted a New Energy Strategy with National Renewable Energy Action Plan being one of the key documents and projecting the share of RES to increase up to 25% by 2035. Finally, in 2020, the new Green Energy Transition Strategy was presented, in which the share of RES was expected to grow to 70% by 2050.
Since 2014, Ukrainian government has taken significant policy steps, which resulted in Ukraine joining IRENA, investors pouring the industry with over 5 billion euros, and the share of renewables in the country growing twice. However, there is a long way to go to achieve our long-term energy goals.
