The Lab hosted a virtual Demo Day to present 2022’s instruments to potential investors, funders, and implementation partners. The Lab’s climate finance innovators pitched their ideas and answered questions from the audience.
The Lab’s 2022 class leverages financial instruments such as guarantees, insurance, credit scoring, and other financial tools to increase the pipeline of bankable opportunities for challenging sectors like methane abatement, green steel, shrimp farming, sustainable housing, and more.
The Lab’s 55 climate finance solutions developed since 2014 have now mobilized more than USD 3 billion in sustainable investments in emerging economies.
The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance
Nations, businesses, and investors are working to move toward a low-carbon, climate resilient economy. Many of the measures underpinning this transition, including energy efficiency, renewable energy, sustainable transport, climate smart agriculture, and curbing deforestation, face specific barriers to attracting investment.
By identifying, developing, and supporting transformative sustainable finance ideas, the Lab aims to drive billions of dollars of private investment to the low-carbon economy.
