Principles for investment grade policy and projects
This document sets out five operational principles for creation of an ‘investment grade’ policy environment, as developed by the Capital Markets Climate Initiative. These principles are aimed at policymakers from developed and developing countries, to help address the issue of how to use public policy and public sector capital to leverage private sector capital into investment in climate change. The purpose is to help policymakers assess and plan national policy that will lead to long term capital investment in climate change solutions. Chapter 3 of the document sets out the five principles that cover dialogue, policy framework, price signals, economic drivers, and government programs. Annex 2 provides detailed case studies on experiences of developed and developing countries in managing their investment environment. Annex 3 provides more detail on key aspects of the investment grade principles.
