Program Description

Sustainable finance promotes sustainable and inclusive growth by focusing on the material Environmental, Social and Governance factors. Globally, several initiatives have been launched to mobilise the financial sector in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement. In 2014 the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) launched an Inquiry into policy options for guiding the global financial system to invest in the transition to a green economy. The Financial Stability Board (FSB) issued the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related financial disclosures (TFCD) in 2015. The European Union’s High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) on Sustainable Finance in 2016 examined how to integrate sustainability considerations into the EU's financial policy framework in order to mobilise finance for sustainable growth.

The Program aims to familiarize the Indian financial sector with the sustainability issues in the financial system and highlight the risks of inaction
