Infrastructure for Tomorrow - Overview Infrastructure for Tomorrow - Overview

WHO WE ARE
INFRASTRUCTURE
FOR TOMORROW
By investing in sustainable infrastructure, AIIB unlocks new capital, new technologies and new ways in which to address climate change and to connect Asia, and the world.

Many of us have an in-built desire for a better quality of life. This means accessible physical, digital, commercial, medical, educational and other social infrastructure. AIIB, its members and clients, work together to finance infrastructure development—turning aspirations into reality.

What our clients build and how and where their investments are built will evolve as infrastructure technologies advance and as people, the economy and the world change. The way people live, move and work and the way markets develop will shape the Infrastructure for Tomorrow (i4t).

i4t reflects AIIB's firm commitment to sustainability:

  • Environmentally: Addresses ecological impacts like water and air quality, biodiversity, pollution and climate change.
  • Financially and economically: Projects with sound return on investment that raise economic growth and increase productivity.
  • Socially: Gives inclusive access, particularly to citizens excluded from access to infrastructure services.

WHY AIIB

The reality is that the infrastructure funding gap exceeds the total financing capacity of governments and multilateral development banks. We must collaborate to pool resources and mobilize private capital to invest as partners or developing Asia risks falling behind.

AIIB is mandated to focus on infrastructure. Operating on the foundations of robust banking principles, high project standards, multilateral governance and backed by a global and diversified shareholder base, we strive for financial and environmental sustainability.

But we strive for more. By 2025, AIIB’s target is for climate finance to represent 50 percent of all financing approvals. By 2030, we want to tap new sources of capital with half of our projects led by the private sector, while cross-border connectivity projects should be 25-30 percent of what we deliver. To achieve these goals, we will work closely with clients and partners for the benefit of all.

FOUR THEMATIC PRIORITIES

Infrastructure for Tomorrow sets a clear mission for AIIB by requiring that all investments across infrastructure and other productive sectors should align and add value through one or more of the following four thematic priorities.
