Discussion Paper

By: The UN-Convened Net Zero Asset Owner Alliance

This position paper primarily focuses on blended finance vehicles targeting investments in EMs and Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Blended finance in developed
markets may also support institutional investors to meet risk-return needs in the clean
technology impact investing space, driving scaling. To dramatically scale-up financing for the transition of the real-economy, Alliance members have issued a Call to Action to asset managers to join forces in driving the design of scalable blended finance vehicles that respond to the needs and priorities of asset owners.
