The Danish Climate Investment Fund will contribute to reducing global warming and promote transfer of Danish climate technology.
The Danish State, IFU, and a number of institutional investors have established the Danish Climate Investment Fund which, through commercial investments in developing countries as well as emerging markets, is to contribute to reducing global warming and promote the transfer of Danish climate technology. The current total commitment to the Danish Climate Investment Fund amounts to DKK 1.2bn.
Investments in all DAC countries
The Danish Climate Investment Fund can invest in all approx 150 DAC countries. Thus it will cover almost all countries in Africa and Latin America, most of the countries in Asia and a few in Europe.
The Danish Climate Investment Fund can invest in projects which, directly or indirectly, contribute to reducing emissions of greenhouse gas, such as e.g.:
- Renewable energy, e.g. sun, water and wind
- Sub-supply to renewable energy, e.g. wings for wind turbines and production of solar cells
- Energy efficiency, e.g. upgrading of technology to a 20 per cent improvement as a minimum
- Alternative energy, e.g. biogas from animal husbandry
- Transportation, e.g. public transport
- Material and equipment, e.g. insulation and district heating systems
- Other projects which can contribute to substantial reductions in the emission of greenhouse gas.
Moreover, the Danish Climate Investment Fund can invest in projects which are destined to adapt to climate changes; such projects could be e.g. contingency plans, coastal protection and climatic information.
The Danish Climate Investment Fund cannot invest in new energy production based on coal or in projects which are intended for catching or storing CO2.
The total climate effect of each project will be calculated in connection with the decision to invest in the project.
