London, UK – Trade Finance Global (TFG) has today launched the Sustainable Trade Finance Hub during COP26.
International trade is an engine for economic growth and development, but it also accounts for some 80% of the world’s carbon emissions.
This hub aims to report on how companies are tackling the challenge of meeting the targets of the 2016 Paris Agreement and the 2020 Glasgow Agreement, which set a path for signatory countries to reduce greenhouse emissions.
Additionally, the hub will offer information on how companies are aligning with the United Nation’s (UN) 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how sustainability priorities are being integrated into global supply chains.
Finally, a transition towards sustainable and inclusive trade will require standards and definitions, the latest of which you can also find here.
As you can see below, the hub is divided into:
1 | Introduction to sustainable trade finance
2 | Featured ESG and trade insights
3 | Latest climate change insights
4 | Videos – Sustainability, green finance, and climate change
5 | Podcasts – Sustainability and climate change for trade
6 | Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
