Amid growing global recognition of the urgency to mobilize climate finance and accelerate climate action, CPI is significantly expanding our global, sectoral, and country-specific work, from adaptation to zero-emissions transportation.

Increased and improved tracking

CPI launched more than 15 climate finance tracking products in 2023. With improved data science capabilities, we leveraged new datasets for our flagship Global Landscape of Climate Finance report and many regional and sectoral analyses. The new Net Zero Finance Tracker launched, now covering all GFANZ institutions. Our tracking work also expanded to estimating the cost of delaying climate action.

Enhanced effectiveness & integrity work

Our Innovative Operating Model for International Financial Institutions for the 21st Century report was referenced at key climate finance events, including World Bank and G20 meetings, the Finance in Common Summit, and COP28.

Expanded support for country platforms included policy design to catalyze finance for Indonesia’s Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) Secretariat. This work focused on key investment areas identified through our work for the Energy Transition Mechanism Country Platform and the Comprehensive Investment and Policy Plan, released in November 2023.

Accelerating sustainable finance in the G20. Our India team was active throughout the year in supporting India’s G20 presidency, including the Sustainable Finance Working Group, inputs to T20 and U20 task forces, and collaboration with multiple organizations including IIT Madras.

Improving sustainable agriculture finance in Brazil. Brazil’s Federal Court of Auditors invited CPI to advise an audit on agricultural risk management policies. Brazil’s Agricultural Plan 2023/24 incorporated CPI’s recommendations on better aligning rural credit incentives and environmental compliance.

Focus on the private sector. CPI released the Corporate Climate Finance Playbook with Salesforce to guide corporations on leveraging their capital stack for climate action. This quickly gained traction— one Fortune 50 sustainability executive called it a “must read
