Unlocking investments for resilient buildings using IFC’s Building Resilience Index
November 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EET
09:00 – 10:00 (EET)
IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is replicating its success in decarbonizing the building sector with EDGE green building certification for climate adaptation with Building Resilience Index. It is a web-based hazard mapping and resilience assessment framework for buildings, designed to facilitate access to location-specific hazard information, provide measures to mitigate risks, and improve transparency for disclosing a building’s resilience information between stakeholders, with the goal of channeling capital toward more resilient buildings.
Financial institutions have a key role to play in accelerating the transition to a more resilient building sector. We are already seeing forward-looking financial institutions responding to climate risks by encouraging borrowers to manage and adapt to climate change, responding to investor demand for climate-friendly portfolios, and financing more climate-smart investments.
