What is Global Infrastructure Basel (GIB)?

GIB (former GEB) is a leading global non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting sustainable infrastructure financing practices. The 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 2014 the 4th GIB Summit will take place in Basel and focus on “Mainstreaming Sustainability in Infrastructure Financing”.
