Catalytic for 

your climate

Our mission is to accelerate the design and deployment of catalytic finance solutions for sustainable infrastructure.

As a neutral non-profit, we offer comprehensive advisory, technical assistance and blended-finance design, tailored for each  strategy.  


Through the development of catalytic finance solutions, we work to unlock capital and improve the feasibility of local projects for your climate.  

What is catalytic finance? 

We define catalytic finance as a type of financing that seeks to create positive social and environmental impacts in addition to generating financial returns.  


In that sense, the term “catalytic” refers to the ability of the initial financing to attract additional investments, leading to a multiplier effect that creates even greater positive impacts. It is understood that without catalytic financing, a project may not be funded at all or in a different and less impactful way.


At its core, catalytic finance is a response to the environmental and societal challenges facing society today. 

Our well-connected team

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, our team benefits from the proximity of a unique concentration of international organizations, financial institutions, NGOs and the academia that we work with to further our mission.
