South Africa’s Green Finance Taxonomy Project

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Following a two-year consultation and development process, South Africa’s first national Green Finance Taxonomy (GFT) was launched on 1 April 2022 by the Taxonomy Working Group as part of South Africa’s Sustainable Finance Initiative. The Group, chaired by National Treasury and hosted by the Banking Association South Africa, included representatives from national government, financial sector regulators and the financial services sector. The GFT is welcomed as part of government's national policy to promote sustainable f​inance and encourage green private sector initiatives.​​​
