Energy Efficiency Finance Forum


Financial institutions support energy efficiency

Financial institutions from around the world are endorsing a joint statement pledging to further integrate energy efficiency finance into their businesses.

Dozens of financial institutions, including regional and microfinance institutions as well as national and global players from over 20 countries, have endorsed the statement, adopted at the Energy Efficiency Finance Forum in Istanbul in September 2015.

The forum was organised by the EBRD in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI).

The joint statement on energy efficiency finance recognises the financial sector’s unique role in channelling finance to energy efficiency investments.

Financial institutions that have endorsed the statement commit to scale up energy efficiency investments by integrating energy efficiency finance into their business operations.

They also pledge to support their clients make energy efficiency investments themselves.
