WWF responds to the Green Finance Study Group's recommendations on green finance

WWF:
► Welcomes the GSFG work and the synthesis report as an important step in highlighting the materiality of environmental risk and its link to financial stability. 
► Calls on the G20 to continue this critical work stream. The subcategories should also be expanded further. 
► Asks G20 finance ministers to issue concrete policy recommendations for financial institutions to take full account of environmental and social risks in decision-making.
