Greening Real Estate Investment Portfolios (GRIP)

Advancing Decarbonization Goals in the Real Estate Sector

Climate is a core issue in real estate

The Greening Real Estate Investment Portfolios (GRIP) program is a solution for real estate owners looking to take action on climate and strengthen their business in the process. It is a one-stop-shop to define, implement, and finance decarbonization plans at scale.

Building a Green & Resilient Portfolio

The real state sector is responsible for nearly 40% of energy and industrial-related CO2 emissions globally, with two-thirds attributed to emerging markets.

IFC helps real estate owners contribute to the solution through its GRIP program.

Designed to advise and finance climate commitments at scale, GRIP empowers new and existing IFC clients to establish or enhance their decarbonization strategies across their portfolios.
