The German Development Institute /Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the UNEP Inquiry into Design Options for a Sustainable Financial System cordially invite you to a full-day conference.

The conference will address central challenges for the financial sector of contributing to the new paradigm of sustainable development as agreed upon by heads of states at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015.

The UNEP’s two-year Inquiry into Design Options for a Sustainable Financial System has undertaken the first comprehensive, international mapping of whether and how central banks, and also regulators and standard-setters, stock exchanges, credit rating agencies and ministries of finance are taking steps to connect social and environmental considerations with the workings of financial and capital markets. The Inquiry’s findings are contained in its global report, “The Financial System We Want”, which has been released on 8th October at the IMF/World Bank Annual Meetings in Lima. Highlighted by the Inquiry’s work is that central banks and financial regulators from Bangladesh to Brazil and from China to South Africa are experimenting with ways of explicitly incorporating sustainability considerations into rules governing financial markets, providing clear policy signals for the financial sector towards long-term sustainability. Financial market standard-setters, including credit rating agencies, are advancing standards that increasingly factor in environmental risk and create opportunities for low-carbon investments.
