I. Mission

of the WWF Sustainable Finance Team
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the world’s largest and most experienced conservation
organizations with a global network of 6000 experts working across the areas most critical to global
sustainable development, including food systems, climate and energy, and freshwater, forests and
oceans, active in more than 100 countries.
Our approach is deeply rooted in science and our mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s
natural environment and to build a future in which people and nature thrive. WWF has identified the
finance sector as a key driver of global economic activity with which we must engage to successfully
deliver on our long-term conservation mission.
Positioned at the cutting-edge of sustainable finance internationally, our global sustainable finance team
of 80 experts – including 30 in Asia – is dedicated to supporting the finance sector to transition to
sustainable and resilient economy via working key finance sector players including banks, investors,
regulators, and stock exchanges, across six focus areas: standards, regulations, capacity building,
research & tools, green financial solutions and engagement.

II. Objectives

Influencing financial market regulations is one of the most efficient levers to shift financial flows in line
with international agreements such as the Paris Agreement on climate change and with broader
sustainable development goals. In 2021, WWF launched the Greening Financial Regulation initiative
(GFRi), a new network-wide initiative to advocate for a more systematic integration of climate-related
and environmental risks in financial regulation and supervision, as well as in monetary policy.
This is done notably by measuring and tracking progress made by central banks and financial supervisors,
and by providing targeted support and capacity building to these institutions. To do so, WWF leverages
on existing data, tools and methodologies, conducts and publishes relevant research together with
external partners. More information here.


The GFRi is a global initiative, led by WWF-Switzerland with support from regional and technical leads.
The Assistant Vice President, Greening Financial Regulation, Asia Pacific would be supporting the GFRi

Asia Pacific Regional & Technical Lead in coordinating the GFRi work in the region, as well as in the

(‘SUSREG’) Tracker. More information here.
