Consultative roundtable by the World Benchmarking Alliance


On 14 October 2020, ACGA members were invited to a consultative roundtable hosted virtually by the World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA).

The session was attended by a selected group of senior representatives from financial institutions in Asia-Pacific. They discussed in what ways WBA’s forthcoming Financial System Benchmark could motivate the most influential financial institutions in the region to take action on the sustainable development goals.

WBA is an independent organisation that produces free, publicly accessible benchmarks that assess the private sector’s contribution to the systems transformations required to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In partnership with its global, multi-stakeholder Alliance of over 160 sustainability-driven organisations, WBA is building a movement to measure and incentivise business impact towards a sustainable future, that works for everyone. WBA’s financial system consultations are being delivered with support from UK aid through the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) IMPACT Programme.
