6th UNECE International PPP F RUM
Barcelona | 4-6 May 2022
The role of People-first PPPs for the SDGs in Delivering Sustainable Infrastructure to Accelerate the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda
Introduction and objectives of the Forum
Against the backdrop of climate emergency and as the world still strives to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, embracing sustainable infrastructure that is green, circular, inclusive, resilient, fiscally sustainable and of high quality where people are the main beneficiaries is necessary to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 6th International Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) Forum addressed a number of current and emerging challenges and opportunities at both national and city level, such as climate change, the circular economy, digital transformation, green procurement and the blue economy, and how these can be overcome through People-first PPPs for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 3-day hybrid event - with in-person and online participation - was held in Barcelona, Spain and was co-organised by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the IESE Business School Barcelona, with the support of the Barcelona City Council.
As in previous editions, the Forum showcased a number of case studies from around the world that aspire to comply with the SDGs and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles. The UNECE People-first PPP Evaluation Methodology for the SDGs – an ESG matrix available to governments and other stakeholders as a self-assessment tool – will be used for each of these projects to assess their compliance with the five outcomes of the UNECE People-first PPPs for the SDGs, namely:
Infralinx Chairman, Richard Ornitz presented in Parallel Session II:
The UNECE Evaluation Methodology and its ESG principles: a tool to attract private capital in PPPs
Challenge: It is no longer enough for projects to be bankable, but they may well also have to pass the ESG test in order to get financed.
The session will provide an opportunity for governments to better understand how increasingly debt providers and investors choose to invest in projects with the highest ESG credentials. The session will also highlight from the investors’ perspective the benefits of governments adopting an evaluation tool like the UNECE Evaluation Methodology to demonstrate to the financial market that from the UN SDGs perspective, their projects score high in terms of ESG.
Key questions: (i) Why are ESG principles becoming so important for debt providers and investors in infrastructure? (ii) What do investors require from governments in terms of their ESG credentials as a pre- requisite for investing in their projects? (iii) Why are ESG tools, such as the UNECE Evaluation Methodology, so important to attract sustainable finance into infrastructure projects?
Expected outcome: A recognition by the public sector on the need to demonstrate to debt providers and investors that their projects score well against ESG principles and the UN SDGs.
