A roadmap for sustainable trade finance

The TFP’s Maria Mogilnaya took part in a podcast with representatives from other multilaterals about how the trade finance community can support sustainability

With the world facing a climate emergency, it is clear that a multi-dimensional approach is needed.

Multilaterals, banks and the trade finance community have a vital role to play in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other environmental objectives. But how can they all help the regions in which they operate transition to a green economy?

This is what Maria Mogilnaya, Principal Banker, TFP, who leads the development of green trade finance at the EBRD, and representatives from the International Finance Corporation and Asian Development Bank discussed in a special episode of Trade Finance Talks, the podcast hosted by Trade Finance Global.

The episode covered the difference between sustainable trade finance and green finance, the key priorities for the ICC Banking Commission’s working group on sustainable trade finance, as well as examples of sustainable trade finance tools and green trade finance transactions.
