The Case for Green Finance
In an increasingly resource-limited world, subject to the effects of climate change, and marked by deepening inequalities, there is a compelling case for green finance. Green finance is an asset class that invests in projects and businesses that have a positive impact on the environment and society.
There is a significant unsustainable funding gap for green projects. This gap is impeding progress towards meeting the desired goals and objectives of the Paris Agreement and other climate change commitments. Of all the mitigation and adaptation response measures, financial interventions are lagging the most. Addressing the finance gap is now of the utmost importance.
The public sector alone cannot cover this financial need. The feasibility of increasing budgetary allocations from the national treasury is limited due to restricted fiscal space at national, provincial, and local government levels. To bridge the funding gap, cost-effective operations, private-sector investment, and global finance solutions should be prioritized, as well as partnerships with impact investors.
With a projected global population of 9.7 billion by 2050, and the ever-intensifying consequences of climate change, there is need to act now to develop strategies for managing and investing that both benefit society and the environment and provide a financial return.
Green finance offers a number of advantages for investors, companies, and governments. For investors, green finance can provide a diversified portfolio with attractive risk-adjusted returns. For companies, green finance can help to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and gain a competitive advantage. For governments, green finance can help to achieve environmental and social goals, while also stimulating economic growth.
The time is now to act on green finance. By investing in green projects, we can help to build a more sustainable future for all.
