The 15 European Development Finance Institutions (EDFIs) are putting their full weight to support the projects, big and small, paving the road to a sustainable world. In the fight against climate change, the most important institutions you have never heard of have a story to tell.
Over the past few years, the 15 EDFIs have greatly increased their investments in climate projects. Their consolidated portfolio at the end of 2016 reached €6.9 billion. Numerous solar, wind and hydro power plants across Africa, Asia and Latin America wouldn’t have been possible without funding from EDFIs. Beyond funding, EDFIs also accompany companies to help them improve their environmental and social practices.
The booklet “Investing for a greener future” illustrates a few emblematic projects for which EDFIs have joined forces, illustrating the cumulative impact of their work.
