The aim of WBA’s financial system transformation is to ensure that the financial system contributes to a more sustainable allocation of resources, and a more accurate representation of risks and opportunities, in line with planetary boundaries and societal conventions. The Financial System Benchmark assesses and ranks the 400 most influential financial institutions on their contribution to global goals, such as the SDGS and the Paris Agreement. As such, it will identify actions that the financial institutions can take to contribute to sustainability and act as a global accountability mechanism.
