Capacity Building

The sustainability and sustainable finance landscapes are rapidly evolving, as new research, regulations, standards, and tools emerge.  ASFI helps financial institutions to understand the latest developments, bridge gaps in ESG integration, and develop best practices.

ASFI will enhance the capacity of financial institutions to effectively manage ESG issues by:


  • Performing annual assessments of ESG integration by financial institutions to identify gaps, highlight strengths and progress, and provide actionable recommendations


  • Organizing capacity-building workshops for financial institutions on sustainable finance, tools, standards, regulations, sensitive sectors, and material cross-cutting ESG issues

On 19 November, ASFI Knowledge Partners convened a workshop on ESG engagement attended by over 40 investors.  Veteran investors and supporting investor organizations shared insights on the use of engagement to maximize portfolio value by addressing ESG issues.
