TAILORED ADVISORY SUPPORT
Guidance from internal and external experts
Partnership is in our name. For us, it’s more than a word, it’s our commitment to you. We’re with you every step of the way, from identifying the best opportunities in your market to securing the funding to helping set up and grow your local ecosystem of experts.
Technical Assistance Facility
We have a dedicated non-profit unit comprised of project management professionals that develop tailored advisory support for you. Technical Assistance (TA) services are supplied by local third-party providers who are selected through a tender process in accordance with international best practices. The TA Team oversees project implementation in close collaboration with you, our Investment Teams and our in-house Climate Advisory Team.
The TA Facility helps you to overcome key challenges in climate positive projects and investments by building the capacity required to bridge knowledge gaps, ensuring adherence with sectors’ best practices and principles, capturing market potential, and reducing risks.
The TA Facility is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK). It regularly receives a share of GCPF’s net profit but operates separately from GCPF and is overseen by an independent Technical Assistance Committee.
In-house Team of Climate Advisory Specialists
Our in-house Climate Advisory Team holds your hand through-out the lifecycle of each loan, whether you come from a Financial Institutions or a Climate-Focused Company. You will receive support from a dedicated member of our Team who will partner with you to meet your business objectives, help you fill gaps in knowledge and practice, and connect you with support from our TA Facility in case external expertise is required. The Team provides holistic support to you, our partners, to ensure you are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of a changing climate effectively.
If you are from a Financial Institution, this support may include help in identifying existing climate-related business in your existing loan book, guidance for the developing new climate-positive products, and assistance in implementing robust environmental and social risk management practices.
If you are from a Climate-Focused Company, the Team will closely collaborate with you and our Investment and ESG teams to conduct technical risk assessments and environmental & social due diligences. We engage regularly with you post-disbursement to ensure that you have the support needed to bring your project to fruition.
