Sri Lanka is currently grappling with a range of environmental and climate challenges, including deforestation, frequent natural disasters, extreme weather events and air pollution. To address these issues, the country has launched the Sri Lanka Green Finance Taxonomy, which marks a transition towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon, and climate- resilient economy.
We understand our customers in Sri Lanka have evolving needs to unlock transition and sustainability-linked growth opportunities with the help of our resources, tools, relationships and solutions. We're mobilising finance, investment and accelerating innovation to make this happen, working in partnership with our customers across the region.
Today, we finance a number of industries that significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and we have a strategy to help our customers to reduce their emissions and to reduce our own. We're focused on supporting businesses across the ecosystem and helping to deliver a net zero economy, leveraging our global scale, deep expertise and strong presence in Asia Pacfic region.
