Launched at COP21, the Green Infrastructure Investment Coalition is dedicated to reducing investment barriers to green infrastructure.

 

Our Purpose

The aim of the Green Infrastructure Investment Coalition (GIIC) is to provide a platform of investors, multilateral development banks (MDBs) and analysts available for countries seeking to finance their green infrastructure investments needs. GIIC works through a global network of Member organisations which bring with them their unique skills and expertise throughout the investment chain. 

The work of the Coalition allows governments and project developers to present their pipeline of projects five years into the future (min. $100 million deal size) and access new sources of funding from international investors.

This will provide investors with early visibility of future deal-flow and give the opportunity to provide feedback on the structuring of financing instruments. MDBs benefit from broader industry participation in achieving their development goals. Financial service providers will have the opportunity to showcase their analysis and gain a better understanding of current issues to be addressed.

GIIC will initially focus on country investment fora. The first of these has focused on India on 30 June 2016. Work-streams for China, Indonesia, Australia, California, Mexico and Brazil are also being planned. 

The GIIC’s strategic objective is to facilitate the creation of a pipeline of green infrastructure investments. Operationally, this is to be delivered by four strands of work:

I. Developing green financing strategies for countries

II. Enhancing green capital markets

III. Disseminating de-risking and incentive instruments

IV. Outreach: bringing together policymakers, project developers and investors
