INFRASTRUCTURE FOR TOMORROW
GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE

There is global momentum to invest in “green infrastructure,” but the actual volume of investment is still well below desired targets. To do its part, AIIB will prioritize green infrastructure investments, including projects that deliver local environmental improvements and are dedicated to climate action. We will cover a range of investments and sectors including renewable energy and low-carbon public transportation, as well as better water management and sanitation, pollution control and enhancing ecosystem services. AIIB has set an ambitious target of ensuring that 50 percent of overall approved financing by 2025 will be directed toward climate finance. We announced on Oct. 26, 2021 that we would align our operations with the goals of the Paris Agreement by July 1, 2023. Our current estimate is that our cumulative climate finance approvals would be USD50 billion by 2030.

Energy Sector Strategy: Sustainable Energy for Asia

Our Sustainable Energy for Asia Strategy sets out a clear framework for AIIB to invest in energy projects that will increase access to clean, safe and reliable electricity for millions of people in Asia. To implement the strategy, the Bank will support its members to do their part as expressed in the Paris Agreement to, "hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius". It will achieve this by aligning its support with its members’ national energy investment plans, including their nationally determined contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.
