"Participating in the CMIA endorsed event at COP23 was very important to us as it showed how the private sector is looking for alternatives to make REDD+ less complex."
Angelo Sartori, Head of the Climate Change and Environmental Services of the National Forest Corporation (CONAF) of Chile. Agriculture Ministry & National Focal Point of REDD+
CMIA represents the global voice of the private sector in climate finance. We are structured around three key pillars: collaborate, educate, and communicate.
COLLABORATE: CMIA provides a forum for members to share knowledge and opportunities for joint working, and by engaging with relevant partners. Our members’ climate change policies and positions are aligned with our overarching vision and mission.
EDUCATE: CMIA builds capacity and understanding of its members on relevant topics relating to the financing of climate action, as well as providing access to international institutions, funding opportunities, thought leaders, and key events, such as COP. Access to new and additional financial resources, technological support and capacity building is fundamental for unlocking private capital, creating momentum and raising ambition.
COMMUNICATE: CMIA speaks with authority, clarity and ambition on the design of policy environments (including carbon pricing, financial regulation and effective use of public sector funds) based on real economy investment experience. Our strength is in our ability to speak with both public and private actors, bridging the gap between key stakeholders in both sectors.
