Green finance represents an opportunity for transitioning the Latin America and Caribbean region toward an inclusive and low-carbon economy while also tackling physical climate risks. To develop the green finance market and leverage private investments, CMF offers bespoke capital market and financing solutions such as thematic bonds, institutional capability building, and dedicated public-private dialogues among financial sector agents and key actors of the real economy. Over the last years, CMF has leveraged — through public-private financial products and thematic bond issuance — investments with high potential for socio-economic, environmental, and climate benefit.
