EDGE Discovery Workshop: Accessing Green Finance for Green Buildings – Europe
January 28 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM CET
IFC invites you to a free workshop on Thursday, January 28 at 14:00 CET to learn more about EDGE: a fast, easy, and more affordable way to build and brand green buildings.
The workshop will focus on practical steps that developers, investors, building owners and policy makers can take to green their real estate portfolio. The workshop will also feature recommendations from IFC’s report, Green Buildings – A Finance and Policy Blueprint for Emerging Markets, on how to access international green building finance, such as green bonds, green loans and green mortgages.
Examples will be provided of investors and developers with successful green real estate programs and of governments with incentives for green construction. We will showcase a case study from ProCredit Bank, which is launching incentives for their clients and greening their own offices.
Focusing on Europe, the workshop is co-promoted by regional green building councils, including: Bulgaria GBC, Croatia GBC, GBC Finland, Hungary GBC, Poland GBC, and Serbia GBC. The workshop is also co-promoted by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA).
