Development of products for the greening of the financial system
4Climate assists you in the assessment of the climate mitigation and adaptation potential of your green activities. We help you identify and set up the climate benefit linked revenue streams or avoided costs and integrate them into the financing structure of your activities.
We develop strategies for effective use of public climate finance funds to mobilize private climate investments, with a focus on de-risking and pooling climate projects.
In the field of green bonds or climate bonds, 4Climate can assist issuers to declare the green goals and disclose the use of green bond proceeds and measure climate impact. In 2019 4Climate started advising clients on enhancing finance action for coastal ecosystems through blue bonds.
We can provide advice for the development of products needed for greening the financial system, e.g. labels.

Sustainable development impact finance
4Climate develops ESG risk and SDG impact frameworks for corporations and sustainable asset managers. These frameworks can be used for the selection process of investments and for your monitoring & reporting processes.
We perform climate and SDG related impact assessments and valuation for results based finance structures. In this respect we assist project developers and interested impact investors through all steps of identifying, monitoring, disclosing and reporting as well facilitating verification of positive impacts, for example using the UNEP FI positive impact finance common framework.
4Climate further identifies and strengthens interlinkages of climate action, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13, with other SDGs to enhance the value and returns of climate change investments.
