Design of a Sustainable Financial System: Swiss Team Input into the UNEP Inquiry
The UNEP Inquiry into the Design of a Sustainable Financial System identifies financing as one of the greatest challenges in advancing sustainable development. Switzerland is strongly committed to environmental issues. In combination with its advanced financial sector, which includes pioneers in the field of sustainable finance, and its technical expertise, Switzerland is in a unique position to present an opportunity for the transition to a green and inclusive economy. The Swiss team for the UNEP Inquiry gathers representatives of the financial sector, NGOs and academia along with government representatives to reflect on the Inquiry’s questions regarding a financial system aligned to sustainable development.
