Global Green Finance Index Methodology

 

 

 

This workshop will explore the background, objectives and methodology of the Global Green Finance Index.

Over the last two decades, the rise of new financial instruments, such as Green Bonds, and environmental markets, such as carbon, forestry, or water services, along with increasing analytical investigation, have increased attention on green finance.

Green finance is no longer seen as a fringe activity, but a profitable and desirable activity, which drives financial markets, serves society and enhances the status of financial centres which demonstrate expertise.

The Global Green Finance Index (GGFI) is an initiative designed to measure how financial centres are responding to this challenge. We intend that enabling centres to compare their performance with their peers will improve policy makers’ understanding of the drivers of green growth, and assist them in shaping the financial system to support sustainability in the economy and society.

The objective of the workshop is to review the methodology used in creating the index, refine the questionnaire, and explore the instrumental factors that will be used to create the index.
