Climate Investment Opportunities Report Series
The case for investing in climate business has never been stronger
As more governments put in place targeted policies and incentives to achieve their climate change and green growth ambitions, the private sector has an unparalleled opportunity to deliver the investment needed to spur innovation and create thriving markets for climate-smart industry.
Published in 2016, IFC’s Climate Investment Opportunities in Emerging Markets analyzed the pledges that countries made as a part of the Paris Agreement, and found $23 trillion in climate-smart investment opportunities in 21 emerging economies alone. This started a vibrant public-private dialogue about how best to achieve this potential through smart policies, innovative financing methods, and new business models.
This year, IFC is taking the conversation to the next level by sharing its experience creating attractive markets for green buildings, renewable energy, sustainable urban infrastructure solutions and climate-smart agriculture.
