What is IFC's Green Banking Academy?

Our Green Banking Academy (IFC-GBAC) is a knowledge and capacity-building initiative of IFC’s Financial Institutions Group. IFC has more than 20 years' experience in the climate business.

What do we offer?

IFC-GBAC supports Latin American and Caribbean banks with specialized advice and training to accelerate their green transformation, strengthen their businesses, and enable them to contribute to a more sustainable world.

IFC-GBAC is focused on the knowledge needs of banks and bankers. Academic content is customized to specific types of banking professionals, including C-level executives, product specialists, credit and risk officers, the sales force, and more.

Climate change is not only a global challenge; it is also a business opportunity.

In Latin America and the Caribbean alone, climate investment is estimated to have a potential value of $2.6 trillion through 2030.  IFC’s Green Finance Latin-America Report explored the challenges and opportunities in the space.
