Climate Finance Advisors’ mission is to accelerate sustainable, climate-aligned investment to the benefit of society, the economy, and the global environment.

Established in 2015 as a Benefit LLC, CFA is a women-owned consulting and advisory firm specializing in helping our clients develop climate finance strategies, appraise and structure climate-aligned investments, channel public and private capital to sustainable investment, and integrate climate considerations into investment decisions, financial products and services, and policies.

We are a team of finance, international development and policy practitioners with over 125 years of collective banking, private equity, climate and infrastructure finance expertise across a range of geographies, sectors and sustainability domains in the public and private sectors.

We have in-depth financial, technical, and practical knowledge, and have a track record of engagement and thought leadership in the U.S. and internationally.

Tackling climate change and transitioning to a clean, resilient economy requires extraordinary mobilization of finance.

Climate Finance Advisors works with public and private sector clients to:

DEVELOP CLIMATE STRATEGIES

We understand and develop climate strategies including portfolio, program, and project design to maximize climate benefits and synergies with climate-oriented institutions and investors. CFA’s support for climate strategies in financial and grantmaking institutions extends to the organizational, programmatic, and investment risk management domains.
Examples of our work:

APPRAISE AND STRUCTURE CLIMATE-SMART INVESTMENTS

We appraise and structure climate-smart investments including project-level investments and financial mechanisms (e.g. funds and facilities such as green investment banks) that mobilize private investment for mitigation and adaptation. Our core competencies include performing due diligence for climate-related impact investments and designing blended finance solutions.
Examples of our work:

MOBILIZE, CATALYZE AND LEVERAGE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE CAPITAL

We mobilize, catalyze, and leverage public and private capital for programs, funds, projects, investment strategies, and companies, including organizing public, blended, or other patient capital to deliver strategies and financing for low-emissions and resilience solutions. We work with clients from small entrepreneurs to developing-country governments to access sources of national, bilateral, and international climate finance and design environmentally and financially sustainable investment and resource mobilization plans.
Examples of our work:

INCORPORATE CLIMATE RISK CONSIDERATIONS INTO FINANCIAL PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND OPERATIONS

We incorporate climate risk considerations into financial products, services, and operations through the assessment, identification, quantification, and mitigation of physical climate risks as well as the strategic pursuit of climate-resilient business opportunities. Employing advisory services, trainings, and communications products, we work to build and enable organizational capacity to optimize climate risk and resilience solutions.
