Invest in an instrument


The innovative instruments of the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance are well-designed to not only drive action on climate change mitigation and adaptation, but also to increase investors’ returns and address prevalent risks.

Many of the Lab instruments featured are currently seeking investment from all types of investors, including catalytic capital from public funders, impact investors, and DFIs, and commercial capital from institutional investors, venture capital, and other classes of investors.

If you are an interested investor, more details on investment needs, and proponent contact information, can be found on the individual idea pages.

Submit an idea

The Lab has an open call for ideas for innovative investment vehicles at the beginning of each cycle, typically from mid October to late December.

You can find out more information on the call for ideas, as well as the Lab criteria and process here.

Join a working group of experts

The Lab draws on the experience and expertise of working groups to inform well-designed, innovative and bankable climate finance instruments. Working group members benefit from this opportunity to network with other high-level experts and leaders and to learn about the newest trends in their sectors.

We invite a small number of subject matter and financial experts to join the working groups for the Lab instruments currently under development to take part in developing the instrument and guiding analytical work.

Working groups inform more detailed analysis and provide guidance and review of the instruments. Time requirements for working group members include participation in periodic guidance and review calls, approximately every three weeks during each analytical phase. The time commitment is on average four to eight hours per month.
