Sustainability goals can't be reached without green finance co-oordination

December 15, 2017

Momentum towards a sustainable finance system is building rapidly, according to a report by the UN Environment Programme, which notes the green bond market is expanding rapidly. Investors are achieving superior returns with portfolios incorporating environmental, social and governance factors, and financial regulators are including environmental risks in their assessments. However, UNEP says this is not enough to meet current global sustainable development goals, and calls for greater effort from major financial centres active in sustainable finance to build cross-sectoral connections, fill market gaps, develop expertise and create more public–private partnerships.
