The Sustainable Banking and Finance Network (SBFN) is a platform for knowledge sharing and capacity building on sustainable finance for financial sector regulators and industry associations across emerging markets.

Facilitated by IFC as secretariat, and supported by the World Bank Group, SBFN helps mobilize information, resources, and practical support for members to design and implement national initiatives that advance sustainable finance at national, regional, and global levels.

Members are committed to moving their financial sectors towards sustainability, with the twin goals to:

Improve the management of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks – including climate risks – across the financial sector.

Increase capital flows to activities with positive environmental and social impacts, including climate change mitigation and adaptation.
