UNEP FI hosted its second round of Regional Roundtables on Sustainable Finance in 2019 to provide an opportunity for members and actors in the sustainable finance community to come together locally to discuss the latest trends and innovations, and share good practice.

The Roundtables brought together 2000+ UNEP FI members and sustainable finance practitioners for insights into advances in sustainable finance in 5 regions across the globe. The events provided insight into key developments such as the benefits of sustainable finance integration in national economies, uptake and implementation of the Principles for Responsible Banking, positive impact measurement and growth, implementing the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, natural capital stress testing, social impact and inclusion as well as cutting edge applications of fintech in green financing.
