BlackRock Inc, the world’s largest money management firm, announced Thursday it has raised over $250 million for its climate finance fund to help emerging markets in Asia, Africa and Latin America accelerate their transition to low-carbon, climate-resilient economies.

The funding, which was committed by a group of ten investors to BlackRock’s Climate Finance Partnership (CFP), will go towards green energy infrastructure, including renewable power generation, energy storage solutions and electrified transportation services, according to a press release.
