Climate change remains the single largest challenge faced by the planet and is the defining issue for our generation and for those that will follow. As governments, multinational institutions and private investors plan the global economic comeback from COVID-19, there exists a once in a generation opportunity to build back better for an inclusive, sustainable, and resilient recovery. Infrastructure is at the heart of the economic recovery and the fight against climate change.

Holger Rothenbusch, Managing Director & Head of Infra and Climate Group at CDC will discuss how CDC’s new climate change strategy is shaping the organisations’ investments, the need for climate resilient infrastructure and the importance of climate justice for equitable economic development.

In 2020, CDC Group unveiled a radical plan to achieve net zero emissions across its portfolio by 2050 in support of the Paris Agreement on climate change. As part of its new climate change strategy, the company will target 30 per cent of its total 2021 commitments to climate finance. It has already committed more than $1 billion of climate finance over the last three years.
