The benchmark will assess 400 leading financial institutions on their contribution to the 2030 Agenda. During 2020, global consultations will be conducted to map existing behaviours and assess the practical action possible. A methodology will be published by end 2021, with a baseline Financial System Benchmark produced by end 2022.
