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.
Assessing the alignment of German and European international engagement with the objectives of the European Green Deal and the Paris Agreement.
This project aims to support the process of Paris-aligning financial institutions and NewClimate Institute and I4CE have developed a framework to serve as initial guidance.
This project supports NDC implementation in partner countries with research-based policy advice and capacity development.
The aim of the project is to create the enabling conditions to make finance flows consistent with low-carbon development pathways in three Latin American countries and to create an improved policy and regulatory framework to mobilise the investments needed to achieve the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement.
In this project, NewClimate together with WiseEuropa and I4CE supports the exchange of experiences between policymakers, experts, business community and civil society to improve assessment and design of domestic climate finance investment environments and raises the awareness regarding the financial tools available to achieve climate policy objectives and foster the transition towards the low-emission economy.
