ABOUT: 

IFC’s Climate Finance Program is a product of IFC Financial Institutions Group to support client financial intermediaries, such as banks, leasing companies, microfinance institutions and others, as well financial regulators (such as Central Banks, regulators of securities market and other financial services markets) to increase their lending and associated advisory support, develop financial instruments (i.e. green bonds, sustainable bonds, etc.) for clean and resource/energy efficient projects, renewable energy projects, as well as water efficiency initiatives, green buildings, eco-transportation, climate-smart agriculture and climate adaptation projects in emerging markets. This lending and/ or advisory helps end-users, namely corporations, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and households, as well as central and local/municipal administrations to reduce use of fossil fuels, improve efficiency in energy and water use, enhance productivity in business operations, increase access to clean energy sources (solar, wind, hydro, biomass and others), and develop circular economy. The aim is to promote sustainable and low-carbon growth in developing countries and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions - the cause of climate change and global warming effects.

ABOUT COMPANY: 

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, creates opportunity for people to escape poverty and improve their lives. IFC fosters sustainable economic growth in developing countries by supporting private sector development, mobilizing private capital and providing advisory and risk mitigation services to businesses and governments. IFC services are divided into two areas:
- Investment Services - the provision of loans, equity investment and other financial instruments to the private sector in emerging markets
- Advisory Services - the provision of a range of technical assistance and policy advice to governments, (central and local/municipal) financial institutions, and to other firms particularly those focused on environmental and social issues.
