29 September 2021, London: Mazars, the international audit, tax and advisory firm, today announces the launch of the ‘Sustainable finance policy tracker’ – developed in partnership with OMFIF (the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum).
- Online tool will help financial institutions and policy makers learn what regulators are doing globally to mitigate climate risk
- Tracker and interactive map cover 14 areas related to sustainable finance policy
- Launch coincides with OMFIF’s inaugural Sustainable Policy Institute Symposium
The online tool provides an overview of how different countries are mitigating climate risks in their financial sector. It includes an interactive map covering an initial 22 countries and jurisdictions. The tracker covers 14 areas related to sustainable finance policy, including regulatory and supervisory measures, climate stress testing activity, sustainable taxonomies, climate-related disclosures, and green bond issuance. Featuring a country directory, the tool allows users to select a country and view a summary of its policies and activities related to sustainable finance. It is intended to be the ‘go-to’ resource for stakeholders interested in monitoring the activities of central banks and regulators on sustainability.
Rudi Lang, Partner and Global Financial Services Leader, Mazars says: “We are proud to partner with OMFIF in the development of the Sustainable finance policy tracker. This online tool, featuring an interactive map, can be used as a key source of information for financial institutions to monitor the activities of central banks and regulators on sustainability, including bridging data gaps and improving global understanding of what different authorities are doing. At Mazars, we strive to help our clients put sustainability at the centre of their business. This tracker will help us and others do just that.”
“The sustainable finance policy tracker is a vital new tool in understanding the global response of policymakers to the climate change challenge”, says John Orchard, CEO of OMFIF. “We’re delighted to work on this project with Mazars, whose commitment to helping its clients transition their businesses towards net zero is both impressive and important.”
The tracker launch coincides with OMFIF’s inaugural Sustainable Policy Institute Symposium taking place 29-30 September 2021. Convening a global network of key policy-makers, regulators, public and private sector investors and ESG experts, the two-day symposium will cover the role of monetary policy, regulation and disclosure as well as address key practical challenges in driving greener financial markets to achieve net zero.
