Why Finance?

Many environmentally friendly developments cannot be achieved unless appropriate funding is made available. ‘Green finance’ provides the linkage between the financial industry, protection of the environment and economic growth; it supports the development and implementation of sustainable business models, investments, environmental and social projects and policies. More resources can be mobilised through green finance for the benefit of a healthier and cleaner environment, and for a fairer society.
