July 9, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM EDT
Attend this free EDGE Discovery Workshop on Thursday, July 9 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am (EDT) to learn how to access green finance and tap into the $800 million investment opportunity for green buildings in Africa over the next decade.
The workshop, offered by IFC and the World Green Building Council, will focus on the investment readiness steps that developers, investors, building owners and policy makers can take to access international green building finance, such as green bonds, green loans and green mortgages. The workshop will also feature recommendations from IFC’s report, Green Buildings – A Finance and Policy Blueprint for Emerging Markets, on how to launch a green real estate portfolio. Examples will be provided of investors and developers with successful green real estate programs and of governments with incentives for green construction.
The workshop is co-sponsored by the Kenya Green Building Society, the Green Building Council of South Africa, Rwanda Green Building Organization and the Côte d’Ivoire Green Market and Building Council. It is co-promoted by regional banks, including Standard Chartered, ABSA Kenya, Stanbic Bank Ghana, African Development Bank, Shelter Afrique and the World Bank Group.
The workshop is the third webinar of the Africa Green Building Webinar Series.
