Newly launched Global Climate Partnership Award recognises groundbreaking green lending initiatives
The Global Climate Partnership Fund (GCPF), one of the world’s largest climate funds, has launched the Global Climate Partnership Award to recognise outstanding performance and impact of its partner institutions in establishing or scaling up value-adding green lending activities.
An innovative financing instrument structured as a public-private partnership, the responsAbility-managed fund uses public funding to leverage private capital to mitigate climate change and drive sustainable growth by providing financing for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in developing markets. With its newly established annual Global Climate Partnership Award, GCPF aims to draw attention to pioneering efforts in green lending and the impact of climate finance in developing markets.
GCPF partner institutions can apply in a series of categories including capacities and skills, institutional capacities and green lending offerings as well as outstanding energy efficiency or renewable energy projects. Initiatives do not need to have been completed.
The submission deadline for applications for the Global Climate Partnership Award 2018 is 8 March 2018. A jury of four experienced climate finance professionals will select the financial institution that achieves the best score in all categories.
The Award winner will be acknowledged in GCPF publications and will be entitled to use the title “GCPF Award Winner 2018” for one year. The award ceremony will take place on the occasion of the GCPF shareholder meeting in Zurich on 23 May 2018. The winner will also be given the opportunity to attend the “Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance Summer Academy 2018” of The Frankfurt School of Finance and Management in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
Applicants are requested to submit their applications via GCPF’s online application form.
