Australian Sustainable Finance Taxonomy


18 April 2023 | 10.30am to 11.30am | Webinar

In November 2020, the Australian Sustainable Finance Institute (ASFI) released the Australian Sustainable Finance Roadmap, which sets out 37 key recommendations that will be required to realign Australia’s financial system to support the transition to a net zero, resource efficient and inclusive economy. A key priority identified under the Roadmap was the development of an Australian sustainable finance taxonomy.

The ASFI taxonomy project is an industry-led initiative, working closely with the Australian Government, to develop an Australian sustainable finance taxonomy. ASFI published a taxonomy paper in December 2022 making recommendations for the design of the taxonomy. The finance sector will be the key user of the taxonomy and it is critical that they have continued involvement in the development, and future governance model, to ensure usability. ASFI will be producing a further recommendation paper in the first quarter of 2023.

Tune in to this webinar to hear Nicole Yazbek-Martin, ASFI’s Head of Australian Sustainable Finance Taxonomy Project, provide an overview, as well as key insights, into the proposed taxonomy and how it might be utilised by AFIA members.

The webinar will provide you with an opportunity to ask questions to ASFI on how the taxonomy may impact and benefit your organisation.
