Sustainable Finance Working Group

As investors, governments and other stakeholders are increasingly demanding that corporations deliver sustainable strategies in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UN Global Compact Sri Lanka Network invites all members to join the Sustainable Finance Working Group, to reconsider the future of corporate finance and investments as a means for growth and social good.

With the establishment of the CFO Principles on Integrated SDG Investments and Finance and the CFO Taskforce for the SDGs, the United Nations Global Compact Sustainable Finance Initiative seeks to provide the guidance and resources finance executives need to transform their business models and incorporate sustainable development into core business strategy, and to direct financial flows to support the realization of the SDGs.

Ms. Nilanthi Sivapragsam, the Chief Financial Officer of Aitken Spence PLC, is the Board Member in-charge of this initiative.
