About Us

Who We Are

The Climate Markets and Investment Association (CMIA) is an independent not for profit trade association that has been providing leadership from the private sector in the delivery of climate investment policy and market mechanisms since 2008. Through climate policy, finance and investment, we are leading a coalition of private sector actors to mobilise the trillions that will enable a transition to a climate-resilient, low-carbon, sustainable economy.

CMIA’s working groups give our members the opportunity to share their unique expertise and push the advocacy of climate finance and investments, alongside instruments and best practices, on complex issues of relevance to their work.


Policy and Regulation

The intergovernmental processes and domestic policies that are emerging from and being implemented as a result of the Paris Agreement.

Finance and Investment

The wide variety of public and private sector financial instruments and tools designed to raise capital that will drive the transition to a low carbon economy.

Sustainable Business

There is no regulatory obligation, but there is a strategic imperative for companies to have a more sustainable business model.
