Funding window spotlight: Greening financial systems

16 Mar 2021

We are pleased to announce that projects for this funding window are now live across Asia and Latin America with our partners implementing them using grants of up to £500,000.

Greening Financial Systems aims to mainstream climate-related financial risks and opportunities in order to accelerate the low-carbon transition and enable a green recovery.

With climate change posing a systematic risk to economies and financial systems – and with those risks heightened in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic – the need to support the move to net-zero economies has become more crucial than ever before.

Here is a look at our grantees and their projects:
