“Catalysing Sustainable Finance To Transform The World”

WHY WE ARE HERE

The Sustainable Finance Institute Asia (“SFIA”) is an independent institute established to catalyse ideas on Sustainable Finance at the policy level, as well as propel action in support of those policy ideas in Asia, particularly in ASEAN. It aims to provide thought leadership and act as a one stop centre for Sustainable Finance in ASEAN through collaborations with governments, regulators, central banks, multilateral development banks, industry, academia and non-governmental organisations.

SFIA a neutral platform for Sustainable Finance that provides unbiased and credible policy recommendations and implementation support to countries in the region, particularly ASEAN countries;

We adopt an open architecture approach where both financial and resource partners will be encouraged to work with, and through, the Institute while keeping the actions and the outputs of the Institute unbiased and credible.

SFIA’s goal is to catalyse transformational change and action.

SFIA will provide a space for governments, research and academia, civil society and industry to identify issues, exchange ideas, develop strategies and implement solutions on Sustainable Finance.

SFIA’s open architecture model allows the participation of other subject matter experts to enable it to provide informed and enlightened policy ideas.
