Infrastructure, such as energy, water, transport and healthcare, is critical for socio-economic development and delivering global climate and development commitments. Yet, the infrastructure we need to meet these goals requires an additional annual investment of around USD 2.5-3 trillion globally. Governments cannot plug this gap alone - mobilising private capital is imperative.
The key role of institutional investors in infrastructure development has been long recognised. Infrastructure assets with their long-term, stable and often inflation-hedged revenues align well with the risk-return profile of long-term investors like pension funds and life insurance companies. But with over a decade spent on increasing institutional investment in infrastructure, where does the level of investment stand? How green are the infrastructure assets in institutional portfolios? And what are the levers to upscale investment?
Join Dirk Röttgers and Aayush Tandon of the OECD Environment Directorate on 14 January from 3-4pm CET for a presentation of the key findings from the report "Green Infrastructure in the Decade for Delivery: Assessing Institutional Investment".
Duration: 1 hour (20-30 minutes presentation followed by Q&A session)
