“CrossBoundary is committed to driving blended finance solutions in underserved markets globally – reflecting our core belief in the importance of Just Financing in accelerating progress toward both climate and development goals. Tackling the climate crisis is a collective undertaking that requires an unprecedented degree of collaboration. Strategic use of limited public resources to unlock private capital is critical for scaling investment into underserved markets which may be particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
As investment managers and advisors, we see great opportunity in Africa. More than half of our staff are based in Africa, and we are actively developing and financing projects across the continent, pairing lasting climate mitigation, adaptation, and development impacts with strong financial returns. There is enormous need to both continue driving capital absorption into existing infrastructure solutions for climate mitigation and adaptation, and to bring new business models to bear – particularly for nature-based solutions. We look forward to collaborating with other stakeholders to implement the recommendations of the Sharm El Sheikh Guidebook for Just Financing.”
