Alliance Investor Roundtable
The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) and Deutsche Bank will be hosting an investor roundtable to discuss scaling up investment in the clean cooking sector on September 24th.
Since our launch in 2010, the Alliance and its partners have driven approximately $50 million in investment to clean cookstove and fuels enterprises. During this period the Alliance has also worked with investors to address the barriers to their engagement in the sector and focused on developing a suite of financial products to enable clean cookstoves and fuels enterprises to grow their businesses and become more investment ready. Using grants and other forms of soft and patient capital the Alliance is preparing a pipeline of opportunities for investment and is looking to mobilize much larger investor interest in the sector.
Accordingly, we will convene a select group of colleagues from major banks, development finance institutions, foundations and impact investment funds to discuss the future capital needs of the sector, as well as the structure of possible vehicle(s) through which to channel investments. Key outputs of the roundtable will also include an action plan for the Alliance to mobilize capital and the establishment of an advisory working group to guide the initiative going forward.By invitation only.
