Global policy

Multilateral organisations are increasingly focusing on sustainable finance policy reforms to support sustainable, inclusive growth. The PRI engages with these organisations to share research and policy recommendations.

Our global policy work supports policy alignment, clarity and effectiveness across jurisdictions, through guidance on foundational policy reforms including taxonomies, ESG disclosure policies, stewardship, and investors' duties. The PRI works to set a new baseline in multilateral financial negotiations that embed sustainable finance policies at their core.

To this end, the PRI engages with organisations such as the OECD, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, UN agencies and others. We also engage with host governments of the G7 and G20 to support ambitious policy reforms on sustainable finance and real-economy policies in alignment with global sustainability goals.
