Sustainable Finance Roadmaps
Sustainable finance roadmaps are being adopted by financial regulators and/or multi-stakeholder commissions across the globe in order to help identify institutional and market barriers to sustainable finance and also develop options to enhance the financial system’s ability to mobilize capital for sustainable investment.
Currently, there are more than 25 countries working on their sustainable finance roadmaps, also called sustainable finance strategies in some contexts. When conducting a cross-jurisdictional analysis of such initiatives, we can observe that they signal upcoming regulatory developments, which include for instance:
- the introduction of disclosure obligations aligned with the recommendations of the FSB Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures;
- the adoption of sustainable finance taxonomies;
- the development of environmental and social risk management standards; and
- the support for green bonds and green lending strategies.
