G20 Sustainable Finance Working Group Document Repository
The proposal to re-establish the Sustainable Finance Study Group under Italy’s Presidency of the G20 in 2021 was adopted by the G20 Finance and Central Bank Deputies meeting on 25 February 2021. On 7 April 2021, recognizing the urgent need and G20 ambition to address challenges to promoting sustainable finance, G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors upgraded the group to become the “Sustainable Finance Working Group” (SFWG). The Group is co-chaired by China and the United States of America, with support from UN Developmemt Programme as secretariat.
