The Global Climate Partnership Fund (GCPF) is an investment company under Luxembourg law. It was established by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and KfW Entwicklungsbank in 2011.
As an innovative public-private partnership, GCPF uses public funding to leverage private capital in order to mitigate climate change and drive sustainable growth in developing and emerging markets. GCPF mainly invests through local financial institutions but also directly.
GCPF finances projects targeting small and medium-sized businesses and private households, specifically:
- Energy efficiency projects that reduce projected greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 20%
- Renewable energy generation projects
SUSTAINABLE INVESTING WITH IMPACT
To achieve maximum impact, GCPF prioritises countries with the most significant GHG emissions and the greatest potential to increase efficiency. In addition, GCPF supplies resources for projects and areas that lack appropriate funding.
