Investment readiness
For the EU 100 Cities Climate Neutral Challenge Mission we devised a tool for assessing investment readiness at the city level. This tool helps cities in understanding their current position, but more importantly, it creates a roadmap for investment access.
Climate finance access
We prepare concept notes, expressions of interest and full-scope financial proposals together with project preparation facilities and financial institutions.

In recent years we have been working extensively with the City Gap Fund supported by the World Bank and the European Investment Bank, as well as the Transformative Actions Program, managed by ICLEI and with the support of the GIZ. Under these two project preparation facilities we have prepared several expressions of interest and concept notes for Global Covenant of Mayors small and medium-sized cities in Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam.

In the Caribbean, we trained project proponents in putting together applications for resource mobilization, investment and technology matchmaking for the Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, hosted at CARICOM.
Capacity building and training
This is our most common training. Cities have used it to define a business model, identify potential investors and stakeholders, and ultimately landing the finance for implementation.
Matchmaking and policy alignment
We help cities in finding the best resources to prepare investment proposals through project preparation facilities before going to full-scale implementation. For this, we support city leaders in getting their vision to the ground, and preparing for scaling up investment, maximising private sector participation.
Conceptualizing cities
Cities are the new investment centres and decision-making. After Covid19 and with scattered efforts towards green and long-term recovery, cities are challenged to find innovative solutions to attract talent, improve quality of life and land climate resilient investment.

For a city, the challenges of repurposing skills and infrastructure call for the facilitation of a robust decision-making process, that considers and addresses uncertainty, while remaining strategic and actionable.
Net zero economy
The transition to a net-zero economy is not only about environmental sustainability. It is all about improving the investment climate, fostering job creation, supporting small business, and considering social fairness in a healthy, safe and sustainable environment.
Climate risk and vulnerability assessments
Climate risks and vulnerability assessment is one of the most complex challenges for investors and financial institutions, as it can create a new risk perspective that impacts the business bottom-line. Our methodology is compliant with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and goes deeper into physical risk by assessing risk materiality and credit risk through discounted cash-flows associated with the value and supply chains. As such, our methodology is agile and relevant to business continuity, making it real, enforceable, and traceable. Today, with the new ISSB standards starting in 2024, the financial sector is posed with the double materiality challenges, embedding climate risk management into decision-making, but also in informing shareholders and regulators on the impact of climate change on the bottomline.
Prioritization and consensus building
We are experts in facilitating the dialogue to reach consensus, particularly for complex and multi-objective policies, such as climate action, green recovery and job creation. We help organisations in defining their investment targets by assessing priorities through consensus building.
Subnational finance
We streamline the coordination between local, regional and national authorities in fostering decentralization, building managerial capacities that assure transparency and sound financial management, ultimately increasing the tax base.
