This seminar would share key findings from the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) report: Enhancing market transparency in green and transition finance
This report leverages the experience of NGFS members and observers, as well as a survey of 25 central banks and 24 financial supervisors, to shed light on the state of play and key challenges surrounding these three broad topics. It also aims to inform a broad dialogue with market participants to find potential solutions to policy challenges.
SUERF is a non-profit association established on 25 November 1963 in Louveciennes, France, by a group of academics and bankers from France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Belgium. SUERF’s focus is on the analysis, discussion and understanding of financial markets and institutions, the monetary economy, the conduct of regulation, supervision and monetary policy, and related issues.
SUERF’s strength lies in bringing together three pillars of members: central banks and supervisors, financial industry representatives and academics. Members are drawn from all over Europe and beyond. SUERF is soundly governed by its Council of Management, which comprises high-ranking representatives drawn from SUERF’s three pillars of members.
