Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
This grant to Coalition for Green Capital (CGC) for general operating support will help the organization further its mission to halt climate change by accelerating investment in clean energy technologies. CGC plans to achieve this by advocating for, creating, and implementing Green Bank finance institutions. Green Banks are a proven finance model that uses public and philanthropic funds to mobilize private investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and other decarbonization technologies. Through the advancement of this work, CGC is helping to move countries around the world at the federal, state, and local levels toward meeting the commitments of the Paris Agreement. (Substrategy: Multilateral)
