The Financial System We Need

Aligning the Financial System with Sustainable Development

image of The Financial System We Need

The Financial System We Need argues that there is now a historic opportunity to shape a financial system that can more effectively finance the development of an inclusive, green economy. This opportunity is based on a growing trend in policy innovation from central banks, financial regulators and standard setters, who are incorporating sustainability factors into the rules that govern the financial system. The report draws together practical examples of policy changes in banking, capital markets, insurance and institutional investment, drawing on detailed work in countries such as Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Colombia, France, India, Indonesia, Kenya, South Africa, the UK and the USA. It offers a Framework for Action that shows how a systematic approach can now be taken at both the national and international levels. - See more at: http://unepinquiry.org/publication/inquiry-global-report-the-financial-system-we-need/#sthash.H7k5isab.dpuf



A framework for action

The Framework for Action is intended to support both a more systematic and a systemic approach. It provides suggested pathways to assess, plan and execute financial system innovation in a more systematic manner to deliver more effective outcomes. Such innovations will be particularly effective if the appropriate collaborative platforms are in place, along with the necessary feedback loops to enable a quick determination of success or failure and the need for any adjustments.
