Can Results-based Financing Finally Unlock Exponential Growth in Investments, Markets, and Impact?

While clean cooking tool and fuel markets remain underdeveloped, predictable results-based payment streams present significant scope for companies to level up their current low returns on investment in clean cooking. By adjusting returns, clean cooking companies can achieve scale and operational viability faster, including by more reliably attracting more traditional forms of commercial capital. However, most companies have little visibility on what new outcome buyers need to deploy their capital, and thus the opportunity remains latent. Similarly, traditional promoters of clean cooking, including donors, generally tend not to know how best to engage with these outcome buyers.  

This session will present insights to help the sector develop the most effective approaches to unlock predictable results-based payment streams from high-value outcome buyers, including buyers in the voluntary carbon markets, buyers of social impact, and buyers in financial and capital markets seeking Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) returns through for example green lending or social impact bonds.
