Kenya is an emerging green and sustainable finance hub driven by private sector commitments and supportive government policies. Companies with sustainability at the forefront of business development will benefit from being in the NIFC and are encouraged to join.
There is an abundance of opportunities to invest and establish clean and sustainable businesses in Kenya. The infrastructure needs alone require significant funding and the resources needed to support the transition to a green economy and achieve sustainable development are significant.
The NIFC recognizes that the financial sector plays a critical role in catalyzing the economic transition to a low carbon economy and the NIFC Authority is keen to enhance the operating environment and promote green and sustainable finance in collaboration with both domestic and international stakeholders to support market transformation.
Integration of ESG into financial services to bring about sustainable development outcomes, including supporting economies in mitigating and adapting to the adverse effects of climate change informs the progressive operating environment and regulatory policies that are critical to support deployment of green and sustainable finance.
