CPI organizes the San Giorgio Group, a working group of key financial intermediaries and institutions actively engaged in green, low-emissions finance. Established in collaboration with the World Bank Group, China Light & Power, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the San Giorgio Group has convened seven times since 2010.
Focus of the San Giorgio Group
Effective green finance is critical to the success of low-emissions development. However, significant challenges remain, including how to scale up climate actions to meet global needs, how to de-risk investment to attract public and private capital, and how to disburse climate funds effectively. The San Giorgio Group meetings focus on:
- Effective investment: systematic analysis of case studies and tracking of existing green investments
- Ensuring learning: distill lessons from the evolving financing practices
- Scaling up: provide insights on how public resources can be spent wisely to mobilize private finance
