Igniting Innovation in Sustainable Finance – Webinar, 8 September 2021


An introduction to the Sustainable Finance Handbook
Webinar: 12-1pm (SAST), 8 September

National Treasury published its draft technical paper on “Financing a Sustainable Economy” in May 2020. One of the recommendations was to establish working groups to tackle key elements needed to promote sustainable finance as a tool for competitiveness, financial stability, and market resilience.

The Sustainable Finance Working Group, chaired by the JSE and supported by GIZ and IFC, set out to map the plethora of new instruments and approaches by the financial sector globally to achieve positive environmental and social outcomes. It aimed to understand the applicability of these instruments and approaches to South Africa, and to recommend changes at policy level and through regulatory guidance or voluntary initiatives to help sustainable finance grow.

Join us for a webinar to explore the “Sustainable Finance Handbook for South Africa”, developed by Carbon Trust on behalf of the Sustainable Finance Working Group to demystify the sustainable finance landscape for South African practitioners. 

The Handbook contains dozens of practical mapping tools to finally provide clarity on the full ecosystem of sustainable finance. It is designed to support banks, institutional investors, insurers, investors, capital markets, and regulators to promote market-wide innovation.

Speakers and Panelists will discuss how the Handbook helps different practitioners and what innovations they see on the horizon.
