Many of our markets are hampered by unreliable infrastructure which can impede economic growth.
What we're doing to help
We provide project financing to support the development of sectors such as energy, manufacturing, transport and telecom across our markets. For example, we made a USD5 billion commitment to help bolster investment in power generation across Sub-Saharan Africa from 2013 to 2018 through our participation in Power Africa.
Clean technology finance
We provide financing to the renewable energy and clean technology sector to support the development of a low-carbon economy. In 2016, we provided and facilitated financing of USD800.8 million to the sector.
Environmental and social risk
We manage the environmental, social & governance risks that come with our financing decisions.
Access to finance
We're committed to developing products and services that improve access to finance.
