PRI and the World Bank developed a sustainable finance and investment policy toolkit

December 18,2020

The PRI and the World Bank’s Financial Stability and Integrity Team are working to support government policy makers and regulators in implementing reforms to build a sustainable financial system. Such reforms must align capital markets with the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

The toolkit for sustainable investment policy and regulation (part 1) provides a high-level overview of five foundational sustainable investment policies, listed in Box 1, explaining why each is important, setting out their key features and presenting some examples of such policies in action.\

The toolkit builds on the World Bank’s Global Program on Sustainability, the PRI’s policy programme, particularly the recommendations of the Fiduciary duty in the 21st century country roadmaps, and both organisations’ experience of national policy reform. It will: provide the basis for a regulatory dialogue, involving the World Bank, the PRI and regulators and policy makers from emerging markets, on the best path forward in aligning finance with sustainability; contribute to the creation of a common language on sustainable finance and investment policy design, implementation and monitoring; facilitate the uptake and promotion of such policy standards by multilateral organisations such as the OECD, IOSCO and IOPS.
