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 quiet revolution

The Inquiry’s core finding is that a “quiet revolution” is underway, seeking to increase the internalization of sustainable development factors into financial decision-making. The Inquiry found over 100 examples of policy measures across 40 countries encompassing new policies, institutions, regulations and collaborative initiatives targeting each of the main asset pools and actors, as well as the underlying governance of the financial system.
