Appendix C
Financing Options for Environmental Exports

C.1 U.S. Bilateral Funding and Financing Sources

Several U.S. Government agencies support U.S. companies interested in exporting technologies and services. U.S. companies can research each of these agencies through their website or contact them directly for more information.
Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank): The Ex-Im Bank provides export credit support either to U.S. exporters on a short-term basis or to foreign purchasers on a longer term basis (2-10 years). Through loan guarantees and insurance, the agency fosters exports by making working capital available to U.S. exporters. Alternatively, through similar mechanisms plus the extension of direct loans (and, on occasion, grants), Ex-Im Bank provides credit at attractive interest rates to foreign buyers to encourage their purchase of U.S. goods and services. Ex-Im Bank does not compete with commercial lenders, but assumes the risks they cannot accept.
Ex-Im Bank has designed the Environmental Exports Program, which provides enhanced levels of support for a broad range of environmental exports. The program demonstrates Ex-Im Bank’s resolve to reach out to small and large exporters of environmental products and services. The major features of the program are:
--The short-term Environmental Export Credit Insurance Policy that provides enhanced short-term, multi-buyer, and single-buyer export insurance coverage for small environmental exporters. The policy can help meet exporters’ need to offer credit terms to their foreign customers. It protects the exporter against political and commercial default by their foreign customers. The exporter can use the extended credit terms as a marketing tool and can use the insurance to enter higher risk foreign markets. Policies with lower premiums and no deductible can offer 95 percent commercial coverage and 100 percent political coverage.
--Enhanced medium- and long-term support for environmental projects, products, and services. These enhancements, which are reflected in Ex-Im Bank’s loan and guarantee programs, include: local cost coverage equal to 15 percent of the U.S. contract price, capitalization of interest during construction, and maximum allowable repayment terms permissible under the guidelines of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The Private Export Funding Corporation (PEFCO): PEFCO is a consortium of private lenders which acts as a supplemental lender to traditional export financing sources. It works with Ex-Im Bank by using private capital to finance U.S. exports. PEFCO makes loans to public and private borrowers located outside of the United States who require medium- and/or long-term financing on purchases of U.S. goods and services through traditional lenders or suppliers. In all cases, the loans made by PEFCO must be covered by the comprehensive guarantee of repayment of principal and interest by Ex-Im Bank.
The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC): OPIC finances medium- to long-term investment projects through loan guarantees and direct loans. Direct loans are geared for small businesses or cooperatives and usually range between $2 million and $10 million. Loan guarantees range between $10 million and $100 million. OPIC protects U.S. investment activities in emerging markets through its Investment Insurance Programs against:
--Currency inconvertibility (the inability to convert profits, debt service, and other investment remittances from local currency to U.S. dollars),
--Expropriation (loss of investment due to expropriation, nationalization, or confiscation by a foreign government), and
--Political instability due to war, revolution, or civil strife.
OPIC also offers the Small Contractor’s Guarantee Program, which assists small business construction and service contractors. Through its investment missions, OPIC promotes U.S. business by bringing groups of U.S. executives to a selected number of countries to meet with host country government officials, local business leaders, and potential joint venture partners. Reverse missions bring foreign government officials and local business leaders to the United States to meet with their counterparts.
U.S. Trade Development Agency (TDA): TDA is an independent federal agency with over $40 million dedicated to assisting U.S. companies on overseas business opportunities in developing countries and responding to foreign competition. It funds feasibility studies, definitional missions, and desk studies for major public and private sector projects in order to promote the use of U.S. goods and services in project implementation. Projects that TDA has listed as priorities include energy, infrastructure, and natural resource development. Funding from the agency usually ranges from $150,000 to $750,00 for public sector projects. TDA publishes the TDA Pipeline, its biweekly newsletter, that highlights new definitional missions, feasibility study opportunities (also advertised in Commerce Business Daily and on their website), TDA/World Bank project announcements, and upcoming orientation visits and conferences.
U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA): SBA’s Export Finance Program guarantees up to $750,000 for either short- or long-term loans to help small businesses increase their export sales. This program is designed to assist small businesses requiring capital to expand sales or manufacturing for international markets, as well as meet their working capital needs. Loan proceeds may not be used to establish operations overseas.
In addition to these agencies, there are several other bilateral resources that provide financial assistance to U.S. environmental technology and services exporters. These include:
--OPIC Allied Capital International Small Business Fund: This is a $20 million equity fund which invests in OPIC-designated countries. Eligible companies are small U.S. businesses seeking risk capital to expand overseas. The preferred investment size is $2-5 million. One of the sectors targeted by the fund is environmental services. Contact information: Allied Capital Corporation, 1666 K St., NW, Washington, D.C. 20006, Tel: 202-331-1112; Fax: 202-659-2053.
--OPIC Global Environmental Emerging Market Funds (GEEMF) I and II: These funds focus primarily on equity investments in natural resource-related sectors related to the development, financing, operating, or supplying of infrastructure in clean energy, clean water, and waste management. Investment size can reach $10 million. Contact information: GEF Management Corp., 1201 New York Ave., NW, Suite 200, Washington, D.C. 20005, Tel: 202-789-4500; Fax: 202-789-4508.

C.2 Multilateral Financing Sources

The World Bank: The World Bank is the largest financier of environmental infrastructure projects worldwide. Its numerous publications include Environment Matters, which summarizes its environmental operations. The World Bank conducts one-day seminars on upcoming business opportunities developing within the bank. The seminar program includes strategies on how to keep informed about projects, upcoming contracts, and how to pursue foreign investment opportunities. The World Bank publishes: Facing the Global Challenge: A Progress Report on the World Bank Global Environment Operations, summarizing its portfolio of environmental projects.
The two institutions affiliated with the World Bank Group that deal with the private sector are the:
--International Finance Corporation (IFC): The IFC provides both loan and equity financing to private sector projects that are unable to obtain financing from other sources on reasonable terms. IFC also offers quasi-equity and financial risk management products. Contact information: Tel: 202-473-0642, Fax: 202-334-8705, http://www.ifc.org.

D.2 U.S. Agency for International Development

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) administers a number of environmental and social development programs throughout the developing world. Environmental programs are implemented through USAID’s Center for Environment and the Latin America and Caribbean Bureau. These programs seek to promote environmental sustainable development while preserving the global environment through reductions in greenhouse gases and maintaining biodiversity. While USAID does not directly work in Argentina, a number of USAID-sponsored programs seek to provide assistance to U.S. companies doing business in Latin America. These include:
Global Technology Network for the Americas (GTN-Americas): GTN-Americas assists U.S. firms in identifying trade opportunities for environmental products and services in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Through a network of in-county technical representatives and environmental business advisors, the program identifies product, service, and infrastructure opportunities in target countries. GTN electronically matches technology trade and investment opportunities with U.S. environmental companies. There is no charge for U.S. companies to participate in the GTN program. GTN also provides a broad range of follow-up services to U.S. companies through its extensive network of domestic partners. Contact information: Tel: 800-872-4348 ext. 3 (Latin American); Fax: 202-216-3526, website: http://www.usgtn.org.
The Center for Trade & Investment Services (CTIS): CTIS is a Washington-based information center for USAID programs and activities in various sectors such as environment, energy, agribusiness, health, and training. It offers valuable counseling assistance to small and medium-sized businesses interested in pursuing contracting and procurement with USAID, and proactively distributes materials on these opportunities.
