The “Global and European Green Finance Policy Directory” is authored by the GGFC, a group comprised of global and regional financial industry organisations. The GGFC was founded by the Global Financial Market Association (GFMA), the International Capital Market Association (ICMA), the European Banking Federation (EBF), the European Covered Bond Council (EMF-ECBC), the Institute of International Finance (IIF), the Loan Market Association (LMA) and the World Federation of Exchanges. Other organisations are participating as observers, including CERES, the European Financial Roundtable (EFR) and InsuranceEurope.
The purpose of the Directory is to provide policymakers and global and regional market participants with a simple reference guide to the major initiatives on green finance, sustainability and climate change being implemented by international and regional bodies and industry organisations.
The document is a public online resource. The list is also not exhaustive and will be updated regularly to reflect legislative and non-legislative developments in the area.
It can be read by global vs regional initiative, the goal of the initiative (e.g. setting emissions standards, encouraging standardised disclosure and reporting), composition of the organisation’s membership, and links where further information can be found.
