Catalysing Real Investments for Clean Energy and Climate Solutions by 2030
Climate Investment Summit is the leading summit for climate investments, green business models and public-private partnerships.
The Summit aims to build new cross-sector partnerships to develop investable markets for climate solutions, demonstrate the market-case and ambition to support ambitious climate policy and bring to light new and successful investment strategies that will accelerate the green transition.
Climate Investment Summit measures its impact and theory of change through three indicators: Global, Sectoral and Organisational.
Climate Investment Summit facilitates global cross-sector collaboration and best practice to support the deployment of investments across asset classes in clean energy and climate solutions by and before 2030.
It brings together the foremost leading stakeholders that are leading by example, to highlight the business models and cases that are accelerating climate solutions, sending a clear market signal that climate finance is ready to scale up and shifting the world into a net-zero economy.
Climate Investment Summit is co-hosted by the Climate Investment Coalition, whose network of Nordic and UK asset owners collectively committed an unparalleled US$130 billion to be invested in clean energy and climate investments by 2030. The Summit demonstrates real cases, strategies and solutions to shift the finance sector towards climate-positive action.
Climate Investment Summit acts as a high-level platform for investors to demonstrate a clear business case, present key announcements and cultivate partnerships that will build support for change and impact the real economy.
The Climate Investment Coalition’s $130 billion commitment to scale investments in clean energy infrastructure in emerging and developed markets in the next eight years is an important signal to other investors. It also reflects the immense task in transforming an entire energy system based on coal, oil and gas to one based on clean energy.

Working with businesses, asset managers, asset owners, governments and civil society around the world, Climate Investment Summit facilitates organisational-driven positive impact for finance.
By aligning different organisations across sectors with the global frameworks and existing finance partnerships, the summit aims to enhance commitments and deployment for climate finance.
It is clear that climate finance and investments must, now more than ever, remain at the centre of our discussions, in the short and long term. The Climate Investment Summit proves that there is still interest and demand from the finance sector to do so.
Peter Damgaard Jensen, Co-Chair, Climate Investment Coalition
Key Outcomes of Climate Investment Summit 2023
Climate Investment Summit catalyses ambitious pledges as a platform for climate finance commitments and announcements. These include:
Investment Roadmap to COP28
The Climate Investment Coalition announced its programme to collaborate with key global and cross-sector partners to build innovative business and financial models in nature and climate by 2030.
Radical Collaboration to achieve the SDGs - UAE representation
Her Highness Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, President and Chief Executive Officer, UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerators (UICCA) announced her vision of crucial collaboration between national and corporate stakeholders, citing the example of blended or concessionary finance, which uses both public and private sources of capital as a way of removing much of the risk from climate investing.
Partnering to Green the Built Environment
The Green Finance Institute and the World Climate Foundation announced their partnership to establish and run the Built Environment Programme in Denmark. This programme will establish, operationalise and co-develop financial mechanisms that will scale up green real estate investments, initially in Denmark with an aim to increase across Europe.
