Green Building Finance: A Zero Carbon Fuel (IFC)



Online event

Time: 15:00 - 16:30 GMT

Learn what has sparked a green building revolution in Colombia, and how green finance is encouraging mass-market, and portfolio-level certification worldwide at IFC’s landmark webinar, “Green Building Finance: A Zero Carbon Fuel” on November 2nd 2021 at 9 a.m. EST. As forward-looking policies are discussed at COP26, this is an opportunity to understand from a panel of the highest level decision makers, how some policy-makers, banks and developers are already delivering tangible progress towards zero carbon goals in the building sector. Buildings generate almost 40% of energy-related emissions, so as the EU Taxonomy comes into effect, this is an essential webinar for both investors and those who rely on them to help finance their buildings.  

This webinar panel is organized by IFC to raise awareness of the power of green building finance, with thanks to the UK Government for its generous support. 

IFC is honored to have the following speakers to share their experience.

  • H.E. Iván Duque Márquez - President of Colombia
  • Makhtar Diop - Managing Director and Executive Vice President of IFC 
  • Beh Siew Kim, CEO of The Ascott Residence Trust (ART)
  • Juan Carlos Mora - President of Bancolombia
  • Dana Brown - Vice President of Fannie Mae 
  • Rob Simpson - Director of Sustainability, Ivanhoe Cambridge

The event will be moderated by Kim-See Lim, Regional Director of IFC.
