G20 agrees on key climate goals around global warming limits and coal financing, but lacks firm commitments2021-11-1

G20 Rome Summit: What will be on the agenda? 02:37 (CNN)The Group of 20's leaders' summit ended Sunday with an agreement on climate that commits its member nations to end coal financing by the end of the year and to aim to contain global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. But the final communiqué lacked firm pledges and failed to put an end date on the actual use of coal. It did not make any commitments to improve on issues like climate finance, paving the way for difficult negotiations at the COP26 summit in Glasgow, which kicks off in earnest on Monday. In the final statement, the 20 biggest world economies said they "would accelerate our actions" to achieve net-zero emissions by or around mid-century

GCF backs Mongolian forum to open up low-emission, business paths2017-9-5

XacBank, a Green Climate Fund (GCF) Accredited Entity, is helping Mongolia forge a new sustainable phase in its economic growth by holding the bank’s first green finance forum on Wednesday.The one-day event run by XacBank, and supported by GCF, is designed to tap the entrepreneurial energies of the country’s private sector to drive low-emission innovation. It will bring together a range of experts to explore how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance energy efficiency, while also making Mongolian businesses more competitive.The forum marks a crucial phase in ongoing endeavours by XacBank, one of Mongolia’s major lenders, to carve out a low-carbon energy sector in this landlocked country.In July, GCF completed a USD 20 million transfer of climate finance to XacBank as part of a USD 60 million project to support micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) finance low-carbon initiatives in Mongolia.The bulk of GCF’s support is in the form of loans, with at least half directed at women-led enterprises.Speaking before the first of what XacBank plans to be yearly green finance forums, the bank’s president stressed the important role of Mongolian women in driving low-emission business opportunities.“The increased involvement of women should mean a higher probability of effective climate finance,” said Amar Hanibal

GCF completes USD 20 million transfer to drive clean Mongolian energy sector2017-7-3

The Green Climate Fund is helping Mongolian enterprises kick start a national, low-carbon energy sector with its completion of a USD 20 million funds transfer to a Mongolian bank. The bulk of GCF’s contribution, USD 19.5 million, will allow Mongolia’s XacBank extend loans to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to break down financial barriers to low-carbon investment. An aversion to the risks of opening new markets means Mongolian entrepreneurs currently lack the necessary commercial finance to carve out new businesses in energy efficiency and renewable energy. This five-year project is being implemented by XacBank, one of Mongolia’s major lenders which became the country’s first and only bank specializing in eco-banking in 2009. At the end of last year, GCF designated XacBank as a direct access Accredited Entity, which propose and implement GCF-financed climate initiatives. “This disbursement marks an important milestone in the continued development of sustainable financing business of XacBank and our cooperation with the Green Climate Fund,” said Amartuvshin Hanibal, President of XacBank. While many Mongolian people currently burn low-quality coal in their homes for heating and cooking, the government is striving to leap frog their landlocked nation into adopting a low-carbon energy sector. In accordance with GCF’s gender focus, at least half of GCF’s loan support in this project will go towards women-led enterprises. “This project will empower women and reduce emissions,” said Ayaan Adam, Director of GCF’s Private Sector Facility

GCF workshop nurtures cross-border ideas2017-5-17

Indonesia can learn from Mongolia’s placement of women-led small businesses on the climate action frontline, according to the representative of a state-owned corporation at a Green Climate Fund workshop.“As many of Indonesia’s smaller industries are run by women, we would benefit from bolstering their ability to deal with climate change,” said Alke Haesra, with PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (PT SMI), an Indonesian finance corporation funding infrastructure projects.Mr Haesra said he has learned a lot from other participants during GCF’s Empowering Direct Access workshop, which winds up today.He said he was particularly impressed with a GCF-funded programme run by Mongolia’s XacBank which helps local businesses tap renewable energy and energy efficiency opportunities. At least half of the micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) targeted in this GCF-funded climate finance programme are expected to be run by women.One of the best ways to deal with climate change is to bolster mid-sized and smaller businesses at the same time, added Mr Haesra.“A focus on strengthening smaller enterprises also matches with the Indonesian Government’s current focus on growing MSMEs as the foundation of Indonesia's economy to better protect it from financial crises such as the one that hit Indonesia in 2008,” he said.Mr Haesra has followed GCF’s call during the workshop to learn from others
