Climate Finance

CLIMATE FINANCE

Our goal is to ensure economic growth in the face of increasingly scarce natural resources and climate instability. Enough capital exists to transition the world into a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy. However, current investment in climate-friendly development falls far short of the need. Addressing investors’ needs, through innovative financial instruments and effective policy, can redirect finance from high-carbon to low-carbon infrastructure.

 

Our Focus

CPI has deep expertise in finance, and is a leader in navigating the financial aspects of energy, land use, and climate policies.

Led by Executive Director Barbara Buchner, CPI’s climate finance program conducts the most comprehensive mapping of climate finance flows available and convenes public and private stakeholders to design and implement innovative financial instruments through The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance. We also work with governments, companies, investors, and foundations around the world to assess, test, and replicate their policies, programs, and investments. This work ensures that resources are spent as effectively as possible.
