More information

The OJK Regulation on Sustainable Finance was introduced as a specific and binding regulation for all players of the financial services sector, as part of the efforts to create a financial system that applies sustainable principles. This OJK Regulation also signified the implementation of Act No. 32 of 2009 on Environmental Protection and Management, in relation to development and employment of environmental economy instruments, which include policies that are concerned with social and environmental factors in the banking, capital market, and non-bank financial industries. Among others, this regulation set requirements for Action Plans on Sustainable Finance to be submitted to the OJK together with business plans, when financial services companies required to do so tender their business plans. The Action Plans should be submitted either as part of the business plans or separate documents. For financial services companies not required to present their business plans, they may submit their Action Plans latest by January 31. The other two OJK regulations on Capital Market concerning SMEs mark OJK’s efforts to facilitate small, and medium-sized issuers to access the capital market through public-offering mechanism. Thus, the capital market could serve as an alternative funding channel for these issuers, other than banks.
