Green Finance --- which may encompass integrating frameworks for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, shifting financial flows to climate-aligned and environmentally-beneficial projects, and building capacity of actors to proactively address challenges and identify opportunities, is a relatively new field in Asia, particularly for emerging SE Asian markets. In particular, complying with emerging green finance frameworks can be quite challenging for financial institutions( FIs), including many banks and investors, especially those with no experience in green finance.
