Closing the Infrastructure Investment Gap

Infrastructure is currently responsible for 79% of global greenhouse gases and consumes 60% of the world’s materials. While infrastructure can considerably lower energy use and increase water supply, the global infrastructure investment gap has more than tripled since 2017 from $0.7 to $3 trillion a year. Investing in sustainable and nature-based infrastructure today will mitigate environmental effects and improve the standards of living of future generations, but this illiquid investment presents unique characteristics. For years, a debate has been ongoing about making infrastructure its own asset class. As interest rates rise, this investment is becoming a critical consideration for hedging against the inflationary environment we face.

Join us on June 30 to explore the barriers that exist to sustainable infrastructure finance and mechanisms available for incentivizing participation of private capitals. This webinar, featuring speakers from Edmond de Rothschild, the World Bank, BlackRock, and IISD, will zoom in on the tools available to encourage investment in infrastructure projects in the Global North and South.
