Pitch for the Planet – $ 500 million to catalyze climate capital


The Green Climate Fund has launched a global campaign to unlock private sector investment in climate finance.

The Fund is offering USD 500 million to support business ideas that drive greenhouse gas emission reductions and help communities adapt to climate change in developing countries.

This is the first time GCF has issued a call for proposals targeting the full range of entrepreneurial energies latent in the private sector of the planet’s emerging markets.

The campaign, which continues until 30 August 2017, follows from GCF’s recognition that the private sector is essential in filling climate finance gaps.
