Protecting our planet

>100 MW of renewable power
2,070 electric vehicles
2,150 solar powered irrigation systems

Our projects and investments support sub-Saharan Africa’s transition to net-zero emissions whilst preserving its natural capital. We finance and develop inclusive climate-smart infrastructure that reduces or avoids greenhouse gases, minimises waste, uses water and energy efficiently, and promotes a circular economy.

We work alongside our partners to design-in climate resilience and maximise the potential of emerging green technologies. This approach not only protects the value of our infrastructure assets but also minimises their environmental footprint and operating costs, ensuring that they remain affordable for future generations. We also champion the delivery of infrastructure which supports those most vulnerable to the effects of climate change and enables them to adapt and leverage new opportunities.
