To use CAFI (Climate Assessment for Financial Institutions) is to position your organization at the forefront of efforts to address climate change. Why? CAFI, a digital, web-based platform, helps banks and other financial institutions to assess the climate eligibility and measure the development impact of the projects they finance.
Using CAFI, financial institutions can also verify whether or not a project meets internationally agreed-upon criteria for climate finance. The platform includes criteria for several categories: adaptation, energy efficiency, green building, renewable energy, transport, water efficiency, and more.
IFC clients and partnering financial institutions—those which have received climate-finance investment and/or advisory services—can access CAFI. There are currently 119 registered financial institutions using the platform. We also extend access to other multilateral development banks, international financial institutions, private institutions, and fund managers.
CAFI is available in a number of different languages, including Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish. The platform is accessible to IFC clients. To find out how you can access the platform, please contact Gursimran Rooprai, Global Lead for FIG Climate-Impact Portfolio.
