What is Global Infrastructure Basel (GIB)?

GIB (formerly GEB) is a leading global non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting sustainable infrastructure financing practices. It’s aim is to foster market-based sustainable development around the world.

GIB achieves its aims by conducting GIB Sustainability Grading for infrastructure projects and Capacity Building for sustainable infrastructure investment, by maintaining an online database for good practices, by increasing skills and sharing knowledge through partnerships that advocate for sustainable infrastructure investment, and by providing project owners and investors with transaction advisory.

The GIB Foundation organises the yearly GIB Sustainable Infrastructure Financing Summit. In 2015 the 5th GIB Summit will take place in Basel, Switzerland.

“At GIB, there are other mayors from other parts of the world and it is important to exchange ideas on that level (…) we have the opportunity to engage industry and funders for some of our projects”

Dagmar VogelHead of Infrastructure Financing, State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), Switzerland

“We support GIB because it brings together the different stake holders, particularly cities which are looking for financing and investors.”

Steve Turner - Head of Carbon Economy, Commission for the New Economy

“GIB was an important point for us in terms of engaging with the investment community. We were able to develop a longer lasting dialogue with a number of banks which had mutual benefit.”

Zhang Ruijie - Secretary General at Low Carbon Economy Committee, CAPEC

“The GIB event was very important for me. It added a lot of value to my programme and greatly increased our knowledge. I also met many investors and consultants through this event.”
