As climate mitigation gets higher on the agenda, it is becoming increasingly important that financial institutions transition to sustainable business models to meet developing environmental, social and governance requirements, and achieve net zero. Pat Woo, global co-head for sustainable finance, KPMG, and Vikram Kumar, new business manager, infrastructure and natural resources, Asia Pacific, International Finance Corporation, join Emma McGarthy, head of policy analysis, sustainability, OMFIF, to discuss the key elements and frameworks required for sustainable business models. They discuss the impacts of new requirements, such as the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures, regulatory frameworks such as taxonomies and how private investors can leverage capital for new renewable infrastructure.
This discussion is part of the OMFIF Sustainable Policy Institute. The SPI is a high level community which brings together central banks, sovereign funds, public pension funds, and their counterparts in asset management, banking and professional services to explore policy, regulatory and investment challenges posed by environmental, social and governance themes.
