Sustainable finance in emerging markets and the role of securities regulators

During the past several years, market participants, regulators and policy makers have increasingly focused their attention on issues concerning sustainable finance in its many forms. These issues are particularly relevant for growth and emerging markets as they seek to develop capital markets in their jurisdictions. Accordingly, in late 2017, IOSCO’s Growth and Emerging Markets Committee (GEMC) initiated a project on Sustainable finance in emerging markets and the role of securities regulators, to help emerging markets regulators better understand the issues and challenges that affect the development of sustainable finance in capital markets.

This Consultation Report from IOSCO presents a list of recommendations designed to foster transparency and disclosure for issuers related to products or instruments and to facilitate the development of sustainable finance, including sustainable products and instruments in emerging capital markets.
