For management

The Green Index 3.0 for management is the full Green Index 3.0. It has been conceived to be filled out by the management team (e.g., one senior staff responsible of environmental performance of the FSP, or a team of senior staff at the HQ including the CEO, the head of risks, credits, ESG responsibility, marketing and communication, among others) of FSPs at head quarters. The respondent should take care to gather all the relevant information about FSP knowledge in term of existing strategy, processes, documents, products, services, partnerships.

For field officers

The Green Index 3.0 for field officers contains only a subset of the indicators of the full Green Index 3.0. It focus only on those indicators that are relevant for field operations. It should be filled out by the branch managers and by the loan officers of the FSPs. The respondent should answer according to their own knowledge, i.e., without searching for additional information beyond what they already know. The purpose of this tool is to gather information about their own operations, processes, products, and portfolio, and not about the full FSP or about other staff members.

The e-MFP GICSF-AG values the opportunity to generate knowledge within the sector and favours transparency. The GICSF-AG is actively working to facilitate the automated sharing of data related to green inclusive finance among for financial services providers (FSPs) that are willing to do so. In particular CERISE, ATLAS, and the GICSF-AG are preparing an agreement to regulate mutual data sharing. This agreement will allow organisations completing the Green Index 3.0 to share part of their data (the indicators contained in Dimension 7 of USSEPM) within the updated versions of SPI online (to be released in Q3-Q4 2022) and ATLAS. As well, organisations that will complete SPI or ALINUS assessments within SPI Online will be able to share their data concerning environmental performance (Dimension 7 of USSEMP or the environmental performance indicators included in ALINUS) with the GICSF-AG, as well as map them into a light Green Index 3.0 assessment. More details will be provided as soon as possible.
