Working with Banks, Insurers, and Investors to create a Sustainable Finance Sector

The COVID-19 pandemic changed lives overnight and plunged global economies into crises. It shone a spotlight on how dependent our societal and economic health is on the health of our planet and how far we still have to go to build resilient and sustainable societies and economies.

As the world recovers, sustainable finance has the potential to play a transformative role in shaping financing that builds back better—and we see momentum increasing demonstrated by new UNEP FI initiatives and the growth in UNEP FI’s membership. We continue to work with our members to equip them with the tools to play their part in a green recovery and put sustainability at the heart of their business.
