SBFN Webinar: Developing Sustainable Finance Roadmaps
October 10, 2023 | 12:00pm coordinated Universal Time
The financial landscape is rapidly evolving, and sustainable finance is at the forefront of this transformation. According to the SBFN 2021 Global Assessment, the issuance of Sustainable Finance Frameworks has surged by over 100 percent between 2015 and 2021. Notably, national and regional Sustainable Finance Roadmaps are emerging as a preferred strategy for policymakers to align national efforts in congruence with the Sustainable Development and Paris Agreement goals.
Sustainable Finance roadmaps serve as framework to enable ESG good practice, climate and nature-related risk management, as well as the amplification of green, social, and sustainable finance flows—all while fostering financial inclusion.
To support policymakers in crafting effective roadmaps, SBFN developed the “Developing Sustainable Finance Roadmaps Toolkit.” This resource, comprising a comprehensive guide, benchmarking tool and implementation templates, is the culmination of insights from SBFN Members, expert guidance from the IFC and World Bank, and international best practices.
