EPA's Role in International Finance
International finance and investment decisions can play an invaluable role in efforts to improve international environmental protection standards. Environmental policy actions by leading international financial institutions, multilateral development banks, export credit agencies, and relevant non-governmental organizations can help shape the environmental protection guidelines that guide global financial markets.
By working in this area, EPA seeks to support environmental safeguards and governance that more accurately account for the value of natural capital and environmental protection.
To support and strengthen this role, EPA works to shape environmental criteria for finance and investment decisions, foster investment in environmental infrastructure, and support rules that incorporate sound environmental stewardship in multilateral development banks and other international finance institutions.
