While significant progress has been made in driving the growth of green finance, little of this has touched SMEs. This is despite the fact that SMEs, just as they contribute substantially to jobs creation and economies, also cumulatively account for significant amounts of environmental and social problems.
This year’s Global SME Finance Forum will focus not only on the importance of greening SME finance and its role in promoting a more resilient and sustainable growth of the SMEs post-COVID-19 but also address some of the key issues and challenges especially on greenwashing, data benchmarking, and verification and misalignment between supply and demand.
GREENING SME Finance
Toward a more sustainable and resilient future
The conference will take place from October 18th to 21st, and will convene global thought leaders, climate finance advocates, leading experts, and practitioners in the field of SME finance to share their visions, insights, and experiences in promoting green finance for SMEs.
