The UN Global Sustainable Finance Observatory (GSFO) envisions a future global financial ecosystem in which sustainable development - as defined by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - is fully embedded into the business model and investment culture.
The Observatory promotes credibility, transparency, and consistency in the market. It addresses the challenges of fragmentation in standards, proliferation in benchmarking, complexity in disclosure, and sustainability washing concerns.
