G20 Green Finance Synthesis Report

The G20 Green Financed synthesis report from the G20 Green Finance Study Group analyses how to green the banking system, the bond market and institutional investors and two cross-cutting subjects: risk analysis and measuring progress.

Key points

Emerging from the GFSG’s work are a number of options for the G20 and country authorities, for consideration for voluntary adoption, to enhance the ability of the financial system to mobilize private capital for green investment:

  • Provide strategic policy signals and frameworks;
  • Promote voluntary principles for green finance;
  • Expand learning networks for capacity building;
  • Support the development of local green bond markets;
  • Promote international collaboration to facilitate cross-border investment in green bonds;
  • Encourage and facilitate knowledge sharing on environmental and financial risk;
  • Improve the measurement of green finance activities and their impacts.
