Established in 2001, BASE is a Swiss not-for-profit foundation and a Specialised Partner of the United Nations Environment Programme.
BASE combines expertise in technology, markets, economics, finance and business development to deliver effective solutions for every project. BASE builds bridges between sectors and actors at the nexus between climate solutions, finance and international development. BASE seeks deeper solutions beyond the low hanging fruit, including markets that are challenging and underserved. The actionable solutions that we design, develop and implement seek to be disruptive, self-sustaining and replicable.
We develop innovative ideas and tailored market-driven solutions for public and private organisations. This involves more than just making financing available. BASE uses an integrated approach to drive investments in climate change solutions and focuses on strategies that overcome key market barriers.
BASE meets its mission by delivering services in the following three service areas:
- Financial mechanisms and business models
Green financing programmes for financial institutions and others
Knowledge products and exchange.
