“At IDLC we are focusing on ‘Mother Planet and Sustainability’, shifting from the traditional financing approach to sustainable green financing. With an aim to deliver a cleaner energy economy, IDLC is always keen to widen financing opportunity to get energy efficiency strategies up and running in your industries. At Comfit Composite Knit Ltd., both IDLC & IFC PaCT team worked closely to develop a successful energy efficiency financing structure that not only incentivized each of the major stakeholder’s involvement but also balanced the relative risks of implementing energy efficiency improvements, resulting immense energy savings returns and benefits. Being inspired of the example set by Comfit, we firmly believe that other entrepreneurs will come forward to adopt similar measures to enhance their share in sustainable Bangladesh.”
