The Norwegian government has accepted an invitation from the European Commission to join the International Platform on Sustainable Finance.
The International Platform on Sustainable Finance (IPSF) was created in October 2019 as part of the international efforts to meet the Paris targets. The IPSF acts as a forum for facilitating exchanges and, where relevant, coordinating efforts on initiatives and approaches to environmentally sustainable finance.
"The Norwegian government supports the objective of scaling up the mobilization of private capital towards environmentally sustainable investments. International harmonization of initiatives and the identification of best practices will deepen the impact of sustainable finance initiatives globally", says Minister of Finance Jan Tore Sanner.
