Green Financing

GreenStream is a leading provider of financing and advisory services in the climate sector. We focus on asset management and renewable energy, energy efficiency and resource efficiency projects, businesses and solutions. GreenStream is active worldwide.

In our asset management business, we are managing both private funds and public funding facilities providing finance for low-carbon and resource-efficient investments in developing countries. In addition, we advise international financing institutions, governments, regulators, the European Commission, and other public sector organisations in designing and implementing policies and incentive mechanisms. We are a trusted partner of private sector companies in identifying and capitalising on investment opportunities in low-carbon sectors.

Carbon Pricing

GreenStream has been at the forefront of the carbon pricing revolution since our founding in 2001. We played a key role in the development of the initial World Bank carbon funds and participated in the initial trading of carbon market instruments. Today, carbon pricing is globally recognised at the highest political levels as a key policy instrument for cost-effectively achieving the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement, and GreenStream’s long-standing experience is in greater demand than ever.

GreenStream’s expertise stems from a diverse track record in all aspects of carbon pricing, from international negotiations to domestic policy instrument design and implementation (including emissions trading schemes and carbon taxation), and from analysis of business implications and opportunities associated with carbon pricing to development and management of emission reduction projects under the Kyoto Procotol’s carbon pricing mechanisms.

Climate Policy

GreenStream has broad-based expertise in climate and energy policy design and analysis, in fields such as emissions trading and international climate negotiations. Our expertise covers technical, economic and legal aspects of climate policy. We give governmental and private clients a comprehensive picture of the complex landscape of international and national regulation and provide concrete policy design advice for mitigating climate change efficiently.

GreenStream's experts have participated in Conferences of the Parties since COP 5 in Bonn (1999) and were actively involved in advising the Finnish government during and after the Paris Agreement negotiations.

GreenStream has assessed the impact of the Paris Agreement for both public and private stakeholders. GreenStream advises companies, international finance institutions and governmental actors on market-based energy policies, such as support systems for renewable energy, and the design and improvement of emissions trading systems.
