IFF Global Green Finance Award

IFF Global Green Finance Award


As global energy consumption soars along with rapid economic and population growth amid the rising challenges of climate change worldwide, green growth has become an essential path for economic development and a priority as part of efforts to achieve a low-carbon economy, which is the main hope for saving the planet we live on.

To this end, the International Finance Forum (IFF) initiated the IFF Global Green Finance Award in 2020 to reward innovative green finance solutions worldwide. This award, which leverages IFF's global resources, aims to encourage international cooperation and the exchange of successful practices in this area, as well as to support sustainable development and achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The IFF Global Green Finance Award is targeting applicants who offer green financial solutions that promote the transformation of economic growth modes, contribute to pollution prevention, and control and address climate change, as well as improve energy efficiency, energy conservation, and emission reductions. It is a global call for innovation and application practices in policies, systems, industries, services, technologies, and talent building.

Since the Award was launched in 2020, it has been successfully held for four consecutive years, with a total of 40 institutions and 30 projects selected for the Annual and Innovation Awards and 3 institutions for the Spark Award. The IFF Global Green Finance Award 2024 officially launched its global recruitment on May 15, 2024. The award ceremony will be held during the IFF Global Annual Meeting on November 24, 2024.
