Why Brazil?

Brazil has significant low carbon growth ambitions as part of the country’s 10-Year Energy Expansion Plan. Brazil’s NDCs commits to reduce GHG emissions by 37 percent below 2005 levels by 2025 and 43 percent by 2030. It’s been estimated that the low carbon investment potential of meeting these commitments stands at USD 152 billion.

Key investment opportunities in Brazil include; urban mobility; water and sanitation; logistics & transportation; renewables; land use through pulp and paper and agribusinesses.

As the world’s third largest emerging economy, Brazil is one of the UK’s biggest trade and investment opportunities. Now is the time to tap into the huge investment potential of ‘Brazil’s New Economy’. This investor roadshow will be a crucial step forward as Brazil forges ahead with its transition to a low carbon economy. A showcase of goals, policy measures, and green investment opportunities becoming available; not to be missed by anyone interested in Brazilian green financing opportunities and developments.
