Future Carbon Fund

The Future Carbon Fund (FCF) is a trust fund established and managed by ADB on behalf of fund participants. The fund is a component of ADB's ongoing Carbon Market Program (CMP), which provides financial and technical support for Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects.

The fund seeks to:

  • Support and encourage energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, and other projects with long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement benefits beyond 2012 undertaken in developing member countries (DMCs)
  • Assist Participants that have mandatory or voluntary GHG reduction targets and policies beyond 2012 by providing ongoing access to certified emission reductions (CERs) and verifiable emissions reductions (VERs)
  • Enhance the affordability and attractiveness of low-carbon technologies over conventional options through the reduction of the initial capital barriers of GHG mitigation projects
