SSF Newsletter October 2020: Gaining ground
Dear all

The year 2020 has so far proven to be full of enormous challenges for our society, yet it has also made it very evident that the integration of environmental, social and governance factors is indispensable. We see more and more important actors around the globe raising their efforts to encourage sustainable finance. In fact, SSF had the pleasure to work with new actors taking interest in sustainable finance in the past two months, such as the Swiss municipal finance directors and the Swiss Consulate General in Hong Kong.

On multiple fronts, we are thus gaining ground. In Switzerland, with the newly revised CO2 law adopted by parliament, the outlines of a low-carbon future are becoming clearer and more attainable. Although more ambitious action must follow suit, these developments provide the financial sector with a sense of direction and motivate us to keep up our efforts. At SSF, we particularly look forward to launching a new report in November on financing instruments for a low-carbon economy, in which we will present a broad compendium of innovative ways to channel funding into the solutions necessary for a low-carbon future.

Kind regards and stay healthy,

Anja Bodenmann

Project Manager, Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF)
