The pandemic has served as a wake-up call for sustainable finance, with a growing number of organisations incorporating sustainability into their business models. To better understand how different countries are mitigating climate risks in their financial sector, Mazars has launched the - Sustainable finance policy tracker - developed in partnership with OMFIF.
The online tool includes an interactive map covering an initial 22 countries and jurisdictions. The tracker covers 14 areas related to sustainable finance policy, including regulatory and supervisory measures, climate stress testing activity, sustainable taxonomies, climate-related disclosures, and green bond issuance. Featuring a country directory, the tool allows users to select a country and view a summary of its policies and activities related to sustainable finance. It is intended to be the ‘go-to’ resource for stakeholders interested in monitoring the activities of central banks and regulators on sustainability.
„Conducting a sustainable business will become one of the main strategic goals of any organisation, which will cause a transformation in the culture and behavior of all stakeholders. The Sustainable finance policy tracker is a one of a kind tool that contributes to achieving this goal by monitoring progress and initiatives across various jurisdictions.”, mentioned Răzvan Butucaru, Partner, Financial Services & Advisory Leader, Mazars Romania.
