Sustainable finance is finance raised for the purpose of sustainable projects.

Sustainable finance includes a strong green finance component that aims to support economic growth while:

  • Reducing pressures on the environment
  • Addressing green-house gas emissions and tackling pollution
  • Minimising waste and improving efficiency in the use of natural resources

Sustainable finance also encompasses increasing awareness of and transparency about:

  • The risks which may have an impact on the sustainability of the financial system
  • The need for financial and corporate market participants to mitigate those risks through appropriate governance

Sustainable finance pricing

"The concept of climate risk is becoming central to financial equations, and sustainable (including green) finance is gaining ground and increasingly priced above, or on a par with, mainstream investments."
The Treasurer magazine, August 2018, p24.
