Pentagreen Capital is a debt financing platform dedicated to accelerating the development of sustainable infrastructure in Asia, with an initial focus on Southeast Asia. Our objective is to catalyse financing for “marginally bankable” clean infrastructure projects to help advance climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts and, more broadly, achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Headquartered in Singapore, and with initial capital of US$150 million provided by shareholders HSBC and Temasek, we aim to deploy blended finance at scale in over US$1 billion of loans within 5 years to unlock and crowd in commercial capital for marginally bankable projects.
Our primary sector focus is renewable energy and energy storage, clean transport, and the water and waste management sectors. Transactions in other areas such as climate adaptation, agriculture and land use, and technology-led solutions are likely to be considered in the future.
We apply internationally recognised ESG best practices, including the FAST-Infra Sustainable Infrastructure Label where practical, and in a manner consistent with the safeguard requirements pursued by international financial institutions. Pentagreen has developed an ESG Framework to identify, assess, and manage potential ESG risks in our financings; a summary of the Framework can be found here.
