Abstract :

Green finance has emerged as a pivotal solution to address environmental challenges and foster sustainable development. This paper explores the regulatory landscape of green finance, focusing on the opportunities it presents and the barriers that hinder its market development. The paper begins with an introduction to the significance of green finance and its role in achieving environmental sustainability. It then provides an overview of green finance, including its definition, scope, and key stakeholders. An improved regulatory approach for green finance is thoroughly presented, covering global initiatives, national and regional policies, and the roles of key regulatory bodies. Next, we delve into the opportunities within the regulatory landscape, such as incentives, policy frameworks, and supportive measures for green financial products. However, challenges arise, including regulatory gaps, lack of standardized definitions, and legal risks for green investments. Case studies illustrate successful regulatory models, while highlighting the challenges faced by specific countries or regions. Finally, we offer a set of recommendations to strengthen regulatory frameworks, enhance transparency and disclosure requirements, and promote international cooperation and knowledge sharing, thus advancing the transformative potential of green finance.
