Framework Library

Welcome to The SBFN  Framework Library

This is a comprehensive and searchable collection of national sustainable finance framework documents introduced by members to date. It includes national roadmaps, policies, regulations, voluntary principles, guidelines, research, templates, taxonomies, and tools to guide and enable sustainable finance in emerging markets.

Frameworks issued up to July 31, 2021, were considered for the SBFN 2021 Global and Country Progress Reports. Country Reports in some cases refer to more recent publications as of the date of publishing.

Additional frameworks will be added as they are released.

This list is not exhaustive and we welcome notification of new publications by member countries.

In the case of multiple issuers, only the first one is listed here.
