An innovative approach

Integrated approach and innovative partnership for green finance

SUNREF integrated approach


SUNREF’s innovation is based on the combination of a financial approach and a technical approach. The aim is to meet the demand of partner banks and project initiators:

  • The financial approach involves providing local partner banks with long-term loans (green credit lines). These loans can be allocated on favorable terms on the basis of certain criteria (maturity of green financing market, type of investment, target client base);
  • The technical approach aims to support and scale up the market for green investment financing by assisting banks in project financing and building the capacities of companies to implement strategies for an optimized use of energy and natural resources.

SUNREF offers its partners an integrated approach allowing:

  • Companies to gain easier access to green finance
  • Banks seeking to develop their green finance portfolios to have access to:
    • Structured financing with tariffs tailored to the planned green investments and to their clients
    • Capacity building
    • The sharing of certain credit risks via guarantee mechanisms
  • Input into the public policies of the governments in question
