THE Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) is working on a framework that will guide the country’s financial sector to adopt sustainable green financing principles in line with global trends.

RBZ deputy governor Dr Kupukile Mlambo said this in his official address at the Sadc Development Finance Institutions Network (Sadc-DFIs) conference, which ends today here.

The conference started on Monday. It is a forum for chief executives of Sadc-DFIs under the banner of Sadc Development Finance Resource Centre (Sadc-DFRC), which has membership of 41 DFIs in the region.

Dr Mlambo said central banks in the region should come up with environment friendly options for finance institutions in light of global warming and climate change affecting the globe.
