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.
