EDGE Discovery Workshop: Investment Readiness Diagnostic for Green Hotels – August 25 – Asia

August 25 @ 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM BST

- Free

Join IFC, UNWTO, and Greenview to learn more about the new “Investment Readiness Diagnostic” that will inform IFC’s proposed investment program, “Hotel Green Revitalization.” The program is a post-COVID, medium-term credit line for hotels impacted by the downturn in tourism caused by the pandemic, coupled with provisions for green retrofitting. The financing will be disbursed in partnership with local financial institutions starting in 2021.

During the workshop, IFC will provide program details and Greenview will explain how to complete the Diagnostic, which focuses on identifying investment appetite and technical needs. As the Diagnostic is part of a series of initiatives, UNWTO will share how it relates to joint training on investment readiness for green finance mechanisms. IFC will also share how to access free tools that can help hotels in assessing retrofit improvements to yield the best return on investment.

The workshop on Tuesday, August 25 will be held at 7:00 am GMT (11:30 am Delhi local time | 2:00 pm Phuket and Jakarta local time | 3:00 pm Bali and Manila local time). The same workshop will also be held the next day on Wednesday, August 26 at 2:00 pm GMT (9:00 am Kingston and Bogota local time | 10:00 am Miami local time | 4:00 pm Madrid and Cape Town local time).

IFC’s proposed Hotel Green Revitalization Program is in the pilot phase in India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Philippines, South Africa, Thailand, and Vietnam, with the view of expanding to more countries in the next phase.
