Green Finance

The Green Finance Industry Taskforce (GFIT), a financial industry grouping convened by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), today launched several initiatives aimed at accelerating green finance in Singapore.  These initiatives include issuing a detailed implementation guide for climate-related disclosures by financial institutions; a framework to help banks assess eligible green trade finance transactions; and a whitepaper on scaling green finance in the real estate, infrastructure, fund management and transition sectors. GFIT will also launch for financial institutions (FIs) and corporates a series of workshops to build capacity in green finance, with support from its industry association partners, which comprise the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS), General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA), Investment Management Association of Singapore (IMAS), Life Insurance Association (LIA), Singapore Reinsurers’ Association (SRA) and the Singapore Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (SVCA).
