GRI Club Joins Climate Bonds Partner Program


 Working in Partnership to Promote Infrastructure Investment in Emerging Markets 


LONDON: SAO PAULO: 20/11/17 14:00 GMT 10:00 BRST: GRI Club is the newest member to join the Climate Bonds Partner Program with the objective to boost infrastructure investment across emerging markets. GRI is a global organisation that brings together key actors across two critical economic and industry sectors: real estate and infrastructure. 

Since 2016 GRI Club Infrastructure is committed to promoting business opportunities and connections between investors, developers, banks, utilities and infrastructure managers. 

With the growing investor demand for green infrastructure, buildings and clean energy, CBI and GRI will work together to unlock green bond markets across emerging economies and open up new sources of capital investment for these sectors. 

Justine Leigh-Bell, Director Market Development, Climate Bonds Initiative: 

“We are looking forward to joining efforts with GRI Club in promoting green finance as a prominent source for infrastructure development. We expect the LatAm region to become a leading force on green finance, building investment opportunities in low carbon infrastructure assets. This is a shared goal of both organisations.” 

Airton Medeiros, Global Vice-President, GRI Club: 

"The partnership between GRI and Climate Bonds Initiative marks the beginning of an important relationship to accelerate and stimulate the issuance of green bonds as an instrument for financing infrastructure. GRI becomes a partner to Climate Bonds at the same time as they join our club, allowing us to spread information and promote discussions about green bonds across the markets we act in alongside decision makers."
