About us - What we do
Raising awareness, promoting and helping the financial sector transition
An overview of the LSFI Activities and Action Plan.
Raising awareness, promoting and helping develop sustainable finance is at the heart of what we do. We are Luxembourg’s coordinating entity on Sustainable Finance and we aim to be a central point of contact and a source of information for Luxembourg’s sustainable finance actors.
We also have the mandate to draft and implement the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Strategy, a document that harnesses relevant activities already being carried out by the government and financial sector actors while also identifies key streams around which we develop our work. Developing the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Strategy was the LSFI first official task.
About the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Strategy
The Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Strategy (the “Strategy”), published on 9 February 2021, aims to translate the recommendations set out in the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Roadmap into determined and timed actions.
The strategy itself is articulated into three parts:
The first part covers Luxembourg’s Sustainable Finance landscape and includes the mapping of Luxembourg sustainable finance initiatives and stakeholders in order to define the LSFI’s scope of action.
In the second part, LSFI’s action plan is described. The role of the LSFI is defined around three main pillars: raising awareness and promoting sustainable finance, unlocking potential and measuring progress.
This section summarises the implementation of the three pillars of the Strategy and includes measurable achievements divided into short-, medium- and long-term goals.
The third part provides additional background on the origins of sustainable finance, its definitions and guiding principles, and the most up to date European and international context on the subject.
Our Action Plan – 3 Pillars
We raise awareness and promote sustainable finance, aiming to help every player be informed, aware, and embark the transition towards sustainability. Through our monthly newsletter, regular webinars, informative sessions, LinkedIn posts, videos or infographics, we work towards this very important goal.
We support the Luxembourg financial industry collect and analyse data in order to measure and follow its progress in integrating sustainability. For that purpose, we launched the first Luxembourg Climate Scenario Analysis and we are conducting the first Luxembourg sustainable finance study.
