Supporting climate compatible policies and investment decision making in order to avoid stranded assets and catalyse finance to bring about sustainable, rapid, and far-reaching transitions towards deep decarbonisation.
Current investments patterns and financial flows are not consistent with either global climate or sustainable development objectives. Driving deep decarbonisation on the way to climate neutrality by mid-century will require massive mobilization of finance in climate solutions, a phase out of counterproductive financial flows, and economic responses for just transitions.
NewClimate Institute works to support climate compatible policies and investment decision making, avoid stranded assets, and catalyse finance to bring about sustainable, rapid and far-reaching transitions. Our interdisciplinary team combines global insights with in-country development cooperation and technical expertise. We work with policy makers, investors, business, and civil society to:
- Provide insight and develop criteria for Paris aligned investment decision making
- Chart the climate implications of public and private investment patterns, identify gaps and highlight opportunities
- Track climate targets and investment commitments and analyse their impact
- Identify solutions to overcome barriers through enabling frameworks and financial solutions on both a country and sectoral level.
