UNEP’s Energy Finance Programme:Scaling Up Clean Technology Investment 
 
Foreword
UNEP’s Green Economy Report shows how investing US$1.3 trillion each year in greensectors would deliver long-term stability in the global economy. However, achieving sucha low-carbon, resource-ecient economy will require the scaling-up o private-sectorinvestment in clean technology applications around the world.Energy access and sustainable development are priorities or the United Nations, with2012 being the International Year o Sustainable Energy or All in 2012, a year also madenotable by the Rio+20 conerence. The green economy and poverty eradication are keyissues in the discussions related to these initiatives, and clearly clean technologies areessential or reaching these development goals. But deploying clean technologies requiresinvestment, and policy-makers urgently need to build lasting links with private investors inorder to attract the scale o nance required. The climate change negotiations have yielded a joint commitment rom the world’sgovernments to a green climate und aimed at mobilising US$100 billion a year by 2020. This means increased public sector resources that can attract private-sector support orclean technologies. However, to be eective, potential nanciers must be able to understandand assess the level o risk and the potential returns associated with such green investments.Over the past two decades, UNEP has worked to acilitate this need or interaction betweenpublic and private-sector nanciers, aiming to build the capabilities and awareness o bothsides regarding clean technology investments. By demonstrating the commercially viableoperation o innovative clean technology applications, especially in developing countries,UNEP is able to reduce the perceived risk o private nanciers and so help achieve thescale-up o global investment that is required. This brochure highlights some o our ongoing or recently completed energy nanceprogrammes that show how clean technologies can be made aordable to end-usersand attractive to investors. This process also builds long-term markets or suppliers andgenerates related economic and social benets rom job creation and improved energyaccess.Starting rom Rio+20 in UNEP’s 40th year, we aim to promote our energy nance activitiesmore widely, providing valuable opportunities or you to learn more about the global needor climate nance and the potential benet rom clean technology investment.Sylvie LemmetDirector - Division o Technology, Industry and EconomicsUnited Nations Environment Programme
