Our Mission: Mobilizing Green Finance Action in Southeast Asia

 

Launched in July 2019 in Manila, Southeast Asia Greening the Banks (GTB) initiative aims to strengthen the capacity of Financial Institutions (FIs) to actively participate in green finance, with the ultimate goal of decreasing capital invested in fossil plants, while rapidly expediting and scaling RE investments.

Greening the Banks bridges the gaps to unlock scaled implementation of green finance practices in the region by facilitating direct on-the-ground dialogues among FIs, project developers, and financial regulators, while proactively collaborating with global, regional, and local initiatives whose objectives we share.

 

Our Approach

 

The Southeast Asia Greening the Banks initiative provides cohesive, sustained, and focused engagement with public and private sector Financial Institutions and in coordination with regulators, to translate high-level principles into action and accelerate the scale and speed of transactions with project developers.

 

Our Workstreams

 

RISK Awareness

GTB increases awareness and appreciation of the urgent financial and operational risk that climate changes poses to FI portfolios across Southeast Asia, including stranded fossil assets in the transition to a lower-carbon economy as well as physical impacts of climate change.

FINANCING OPPORTUNITIES

GTB aims to accelerate the development of an investable green infrastructure project pipeline, including RE and EE projects, by addressing long and slow due diligence processes within banks as well as improving project readiness submissions among project developers.

GREEN PRODUCTS

GTB encourages the increased development and issuance of green financial products such as green bonds, green loans, working capital for ESCOs, and consumer loans to enable widespread green technology adoption across Southeast Asia.
