Mazars and OMFIF launch Sustainable Finance Policy Tracker


Monday 11th October 2021

For many professionals working in financial modelling for energy and infrastructure, the topic of Sustainable Finance is a topic of clear interest. Sustainable finance reaches well outside financial modelling for renewable energy projects. To provide further insights into this area we have partnered with OMFIF to launch a global Sustainable Finance Policy Tracker.

Sustainable Finance Policy and developments during the Covid pandemic

The Covid pandemic has served as a wake-up call for the industry in relation to Sustainable Finance. At Mazars we have seen a significant increase in the focus from the majority of organisations to embed sustainability into their business models. In parallel, many jurisdictions are seeing a climate stress test becoming mainstream. There is rapid and tangible development. While development is rapid, there still is a significant lack of consistency between international regulators in relation to addressing the climate change situation.

Monitoring international developments in Sustainable Finance Policy

Mazars has partnered with OMFIF to launch a global tool for easy comparison between regions. The intention is to assist our clients in monitoring developments around Sustainable Finance, and to be able to compare various countries.

  • Activity relating to financial stress-testing
  • Sustainable taxonomies
  • Climate-related disclosures and green bond issuance
