The Brazilian Financial System and the Green Economy: measuring financial resource allocation towards a green economy by the brazilian financial system

October, 2015

In 2014, FEBRABAN and the Fundação Getúlio Vargas Center for Sustainability Studies (FGVCes) analyzed the possible ways of leveraging the transition to a Green Economy in Brazil through the Brazilian Financial Sector.

The outcome of this partnership was the publication, in April 2015, of a report addressing, among other issues, the volume of funds allocated by the financial industry to the Green Economy as of December 31, 2013. Based on a more in-depth look at this analysis, this paper aims to put forward a methodology for identifying the resources in the Brazilian Financial System (BFS) towards a Green Economy (GE) – as defined by UNEP. The scope of the analysis was extended to include amounts allocated to sectors with the potential to cause environmental impact, namely those sectors with potential positive and/or negative impacts, and where in both cases socioenvironmental risk management is essential, whether for reducing negative impacts to minimum, or boosting positive aspects.
