ICMA publishes a Compendium of international policy initiatives and best market practice for sustainable finance


20 February 2020 As the international market for sustainable finance continues to grow rapidly, supported by initiatives from governments, regulators, exchanges, financial industry associations and market participants themselves, ICMA has published a Compendium intended to provide stakeholders with an easy reference point to the numerous national and international developments in the field.

ICMA has contributed actively to the policy and regulatory dialogue at the national and international level, including the G20 and continues to do so notably as a member of the European Commission’s Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance. Through its work in support of the Green Bond Principles and Social Bond Principles, ICMA has been a key actor in the mainstreaming of the green, social and sustainability bond market.

The Compendium is the first publication of ICMA’s Sustainable Finance Committee set up in September 2019. This Committee brings together various ICMA committees, including its buy-side arm, corporate issuer forum, legal and documentation committee as well as the Executive Committee of the Green Bond Principles and the Social Bond Principles, and aims to address cross-cutting sustainable finance developments.

The publication will be regularly updated. For more information about ICMA’s sustainability work please see our website.
