GreenMicrofinance Certification™ for MFIs

GreenMicrofinance Certification™ for MFIs | Climate Finance | Scoop.it

 The GreenMicrofinance Certification™ creates an environmental sustainability education and certification program for Microfinance Institutions (MFIs).  


The program empowers banks to become more aware of the environmental ramifications of their activities and thereby encourage banks to become more environmentally sustainable operationally.  It is anticipated during the process that they will become advocates and developers of sustainable micro-businesses through their lending practices. It will eventually lead to the entire community served by the MFI being environmentally conscious and self sufficient in energy using green technologies.
