About 2060 Advisory
2060 Advisory is an impact investing and financing advisory company dedicated to serving entrepreneurs in China who are willing to solve social and environmental problems, to obtain better matching and effective capital. We focus on projects within the scope of the transformation of carbon neutrality and 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals(UN SDGs).
Our core methodology derives from impact investment (“Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. ”(GIIN, 2021)). We dedicate to becoming an institution linking different departments and flexibly building a sustainable financial structure for the primary financial market in China. Our core businesses include financing advisory services for early-stage companies, fundraising services for impact investors and funds, and other advisory services for impact/sustainable investment.
2060 is the target year for China to achieve carbon neutrality, which we use as our name, referring to the sustainable future we foresee. At the core of this transition is the need to finance new technologies — the financial sector must unlock CNY 139 trillion ($22 trillion) across carbon-heavy industries for the 2020-60 period(CICC Research Institute, 2021). Within the scope, we have also set targets institutionally, which will be gradually published.
