Green Finance Mapping
The Green Finance Mapping is one of IDFC’s most important and renowned projects. With the aim of identifying and categorizing
financial flows of IDFC Members to projects in the fields of green energy, adaptation and mitigation of climate change and the
reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the Green Finance Mapping Report offers a transparent view on the activities of IDFC Members.
The Green Finance Mapping provides consistent information on green finance flows from a major group of national, sub regional and
international development banks based in OECD and non OECD countries, including domestic flows.
IDFC members made new commitments of 98 billion US$ in green finance during 2014. The largest share of attributable green financing (67%) was invested in green energy and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions projects. This shows that beyond climate finance flows provided by governments, UN agencies and international financial organisations, national, sub-regional and international development banks play a major role in providing climate and green finance, particularly to developing countries: 69% of the total green finance for 2014 was channelled to projects in developing countries.
In 2016, IDFC is renewing the Green Finance Mapping Report with updated numbers, coherencies and new findings of green finance activities of IDFC.
