YEAR IN REVIEW
Investing in climate finance to drive greater impact.
As 2019 closes and 2020 begins, AIIB is continuing to support investments in climate finance within Asia. In September 2019, we made a joint financing pledge together with eight other multilateral development banks (MDBs) to increase annual global climate action investments to USD175 billion by 2025. In 2018, MDB annual climate finance in developing countries and emerging economies reached USD111 billion. At end-2018, 35 percent of AIIB’s approved investment portfolio was dedicated to climate finance.

The capital markets of the 21st century will be green. To support this trend in Asia, we have launched the Sustainable Capital Markets Initiative, which aims to catalyze ESG (environmental, social and governance) investing strategies, act as an engine of change to improve ESG standards and build capacity around responsible investing to improve disclosure and expand ESG rating coverage in Emerging Asia.

In 2020, in alignment with our green core value, AIIB stands ready to assist its members in achieving their nationally determined contributions and ensure that its investments and internal operations are in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
Innovative financing solutions to mobilize private capital.
In 2019 we launched innovative solutions to unlock Asia’s financing future:

Debut Global bond issuance–USD2.5-billion five-year bond demonstrates our investor commitment to driving socioeconomic development in Asia. It was named SSAR Bond of the Year by International Financing Review, Supranational Dollar Bond of the Year by Global Capital, Best SSA Bond by Global Capital Asia, and Sustainable Finance, China, Best New Bond by The Asset.
