Green finance

The financial sector increasingly plays a role in advancing sustainable practices. Green, climate or sustainable finance aims to contribute to the transition toward a more sustainable and resilient economy by mobilising capital for environmentally beneficial projects while generating value for society.

We identify financial activities, strategies, and instruments that link financial decisions to the environmental performance and/or climate-related risks of financed projects to align these decisions with sustainability objectives.

Examples of green finance initiatives include green bonds, where investments are conditional on environmental criteria, the integration of climate risks into financial decisions, and the disclosure and standardized measurement of companies' environmental performance to improve transparency.
