Financing The Green Transition

April 24, 2017

The aim of this white paper is to share some of Denmark’s – and Danish financial institutions’ – examples on how to finance smaller or larger projects within climate adaption, energy, energy efficiency, environment and water.

Denmark has led the way in the global energy transition with national policies and technological solutions. But the green transition will not take of without financing. Danish public and private financial institutions, including institutional investors like pension funds, have been drivers for projects around the world.

In this white paper we have gathered a selection of examples from a number of projects from all around the world where Danish investors and financial institutions have been instrumental in securing projects being realised.

Financing the green transition will be one of the big global challenges in the coming decades and we hope that this white paper will be an inspiration to help new projects to get underway.
