About GDFA

The Green Digital Finance Alliance (GDFA) was launched  as a not-for-profit foundation by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and Ant Group at the World Economic Forum.

A dynamic Think-Do-Tank, we take a systems approach to enable the sustainable transition across sectors and geographies, addressing barriers and bridging innovation gaps between emerging technology for climate, biodiversity and sustainable development with new financing and business models.

GDFA collaborates with a global ecosystem of experts, international organizations, research institutions, philanthropic foundations, NGOs, public and private sector actors.
