The GreenInvest platform under Germany’s G20 Presidency was officially relaunched at an event in Singapore on 9-10 January 2017.
The Singapore Consultation aimed to advance each of its specific goals and themes. The Singapore Consultation was the first of three planned under the German G20 Presidency, and initiated for the first time dialogue on:
- How international initiatives on sustainable finance can work to improve their coordination and information sharing.
- How developing countries discuss and contribute to the work of the FSB Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
- How green FDI can best be shaped through work planned going forward involving UNCTAD and other expert institutions.
- How the nexus between green finance and fintech – specifically for developing countries – can be exploited as a policy and market opportunity.
The meeting in Singapore gathered participants from non-G20 developing countries, a handful from G20 countries, coordinators of the key networks on green and inclusive finance and representatives of key international organizations.
The meeting was held at the Singapore Management University (SMU), and drew in parts on the Singaporean financial community, as well as tapping in particular representatives from G20 countries such as Indonesia.
