In an evolving context of emerging markets, technological disruption and changing social expectations, green finance has seen remarkable development in recent times. The green bond market is growing, global financial centres are competing to become centre of green finance, and the EU is developing a Green Finance strategy. To ensure lasting change, all financial institutions need to take on a truly green mandate.

We aim to reduce the negative impact of economic activities on nature and people by:

  • improving standards and regulations to include environmental impact and risk
  • encouraging better green finance standards and performance in global financial centres
  • preventing climate and environmental risk punishing the most vulnerable countries
  • developing digital finance and the use of big data to increase environmental transparency and support funding for the green economy
  • innovating financial system improvement
