At IDB Invest, we are committed to advancing development in Latin America and the Caribbean through the private sector.
One reason we can do that effectively is because of the network of donors and partners who share our commitment to the region and work hand in hand with us to realize our common goals.
Take climate finance, for example. In 2017 alone, we mobilized around $215 million in new donor resources, bringing the total climate-related resources under our management to more than $780 million. This type of support enables us to incorporate concessional financing into many of our loan packages, providing the extra push needed to attract more private investment in clean energy and climate adaptation measures.
Thanks to our donors and partners, we can also offer a range of advisory services that add value to our financial products, whether by encouraging companies to strengthen gender equality and diversity in the workplace or providing incentives to financial institutions to expand financing for small and medium-sized businesses.
At IDB Invest, we strive to earn the trust of our partners every day by upholding core values—including social and environmental sustainability, effective corporate governance, transparency and accountability—and by producing results.
A strong private sector can and must play a significant role in the region’s development. We are partnering with governments, international agencies, nonprofit organizations, foundations, private companies and others who share that conviction and who are helping to multiply our impact.
