Fourth meeting of the G20 Sustainable Finance Working Group (SFWG)

The fourth meeting of the Sustainable Finance Working Group (SFWG) was held online on 17 September 2021 and discussed an improved version of the G20 Sustainable Finance Roadmap and of the 2021 Sustainable Finance Synthesis Report in two separate sessions. There is broad agreement on the actions and recommendations proposed in the two documents, which will be finalized in the coming days. Regarding the Roadmap, the group concurred that the document is well-focused and sufficiently flexible to be expanded, in the next few years, to explore the challenges and opportunities related to other sustainability issues beyond climate. A final version of the two documents that will include the suggestions obtained today will be submitted to the Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting in October. The documents of the group are available on the Group website.
