Sustainable Finance Policy Engagement

The world's most comprehensive analysis on how the financial sector is influencing climate-related financial policy

The financial sector is extensively engaged in influencing the passage of sustainable finance policies globally. This platform provides accessible analysis of these influencing activities, drawn from a database of over 5000 data points.

Beginning with the EU's Action Plan on Sustainable Finance in 2018, the last few years have seen a significant increase in interest by policymakers to implement policies that tackle climate-related financial risk, aim to reorient capital flows towards a more sustainable economy and mainstream sustainability issues into financial decision-making. The UN PRI's regulation database has tracked more than 750 relevant policy interventions globally, with notable recent policy developments including the EU's Renewed Sustainable Finance Strategy (2021) and the Biden Administration's Executive Order on Climate-Related Financial Risk (2021).

InfluenceMap continually tracks and analyzes the positioning of more than 80 of the largest Europe and US-based financial institutions on sustainable finance policy, alongside their key industry associations.

InfluenceMap maintains the world’s leading database of lobbying on climate policy around the globe.

In 2020, InfluenceMap expanded this work to cover sustainable finance policy, with the methodology closely following the existing methodology on climate policy which can be found here.
