LAGreen aims to support positive environmental (with focus on climate action) and societal benefits by providing responsible and sustainable finance in Latin America. Funding is offered predominantly via green, social and sustainability bonds.
Through its investments and technical assistance, the fund improves general access to financing for green projects, providing much-needed capital to scale the green economy by supporting financial institutions and real economy issuers to issue green bonds and incorporate a sustainability focus.
Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, renewable energy, energy efficiency, pollution prevention and control, and to the environmentally-sustainable management of natural resources and land use.
These activities have shown effective in contributing to positive environmental impacts, including reduced CO2 emissions or biodiversity conservation. In addition, they also support jobs and the overall sustainable economic development.
