Private investors – often supported by public policy and finance – are already channelling significant amounts of money into the low-carbon economy in countries around the world. CPI research found that climate finance flows reached a record high of USD 472 billion in 2015, driven primarily by rising private investment in renewables.

Private investors – often supported by public policy and finance – are already channelling significant amounts of money into the low-carbon economy in countries around the world. CPI research found that climate finance flows reached a record high of USD 472 billion in 2015, driven primarily by rising private investment in renewables. However, much more is needed, as these figures represent a small share of the overall economic transition required to address climate change.

Well-designed financial instruments that reduce private investors’ risks and improve their financial returns need to be scaled up to transition towards a low-carbon, climate resilient economy. These instruments can build new markets, attract new investors, and help to unlock billions of dollars in new climate-friendly investment in developing countries.

CPI is known as a leader in tracking sustainable investment trends, identifying innovative business models, and supporting the solutions that can drive a transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy. Our flagship program, the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance (the Lab) identifies innovative ideas with high potential to drive private finance, and helps get these ideas to market. In five years, the Lab has helped launch 35 sustainable investment solutions that together have mobilised $1.6 billion for climate projects in the most critical regions and sectors.

This London Climate Action Week event will showcase innovative climate finance instruments accelerated under the Lab while also highlighting key needs and challenges to mobilise sufficient private finance to achieve 2-degree objectives. Innovators driving forward these solutions will be featured, from both the implementer and investor perspectives.
