“The International Platform on Sustainable Finance (IPSF) was launched on 18 October 2019. Its members are public authorities from Argentina, Canada, Chile, China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, New Zealand, Norway, Senegal, Singapore, Switzerland and the European Union, representing almost half of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.”
“The ultimate objective of the IPSF is to scale up the mobilisation of private capital towards environmentally sustainable investments”. The IPSF therefore offers a multilateral forum of dialogue between policymakers that are in charge of developing sustainable finance regulatory measures to help investors identify and seize sustainable investment opportunities that truly contribute to climate and environmental objectives. Through the IPSF, members can exchange and disseminate information to promote best practices, compare their different initiatives and identify barriers and opportunities of sustainable finance, while respecting national and regional contexts. Where appropriate, willing members can further strive to align their initiatives and approaches.
