Climate Finance

While global investment in renewable energy has risen steadily in recent years, it remains far below the level required to put the world on course toward a climate-safe future. From the approximately USD 300 billion global investment in recent years, annual investments in renewables must roughly triple to USD 800 billion by 2050 to fulfill key global decarbonization and climate goals. iGDP works closely with clean energy finance practitioners to facilitate integration and coordination between policymaking, industry and financial circles, helping to overcome barriers to climate-safe investment and contribute to carbon neutrality goals.

China’s carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals are reshaping the drivers of China’s economic growth. These two national level goals must now be reflected in China’s ongoing infrastructure investment. iGDP tracks infrastructure investment activity and its contribution to long-term peaking and neutrality goals, and provides analysis of the green quality of China post-COVID economic recovery.
