Global Practice

Green Investment Services (GIS)

GGGI’s Green Investment Services (GIS) Global Practice supports the organization’s Member and Partner countries in mobilizing green finance needed for meeting their NDCs and green growth targets. As part of these efforts, GGGI has leveraged US$ 2 billion of climate finance for 60 projects during 2015-2020. In 2021, GGGI has mobilized additional US$ 5 billion, totaling over US$ 7 billion of initial investment commitment for climate projects since 2015. The core focus of these efforts work was to bridge the gap between financiers and projects, i.e. the lack of well-designed green projects that meet the risk-reward expectations of investors, and creating National Financing Vehicles (NFVs) with the aim to blend public and private sources of finance, both international and domestic, to expedite the finance flow to address the gap between financiers and projects. An external evaluation of GGGI’s mobilization efforts conducted in 2019 confirmed that the majority of GGGI-initiated projects move forward to financing & implementation.

The first Global Operational Priority in GGGI’s Strategy 2030 is to catalyze and accelerate access to climate finance/green investment and the GIS Global Practice supports the organization’s ambition to mobilize USD 2 billion of green investment commitments annually by 2030. The intention is to scale the mobilization efforts by expanding GGGI’s engagements around green/climate bonds and by greening domestic banks in emerging markets, while developing and deepening partnerships with strategic investors, institutions, and platforms with a deep understanding of, and a long-term commitment to, green growth in developing countries and emerging markets. GIS Global Practice is collaborating with leading organizations in the field — currently leading the partnership with the ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility as a knowledge partner and engaging as an observer to the Green & Social Bond Principles of the International Capital Market Association.
