The Green Index 2.0, An innovative tool to assess environmental performance in the microfinance sector

3 November, 2016

The Green Index 2.0 is the most recent experience based-update of the tool developed by the e-MFP Microfinance and Environment Action Group in 2014 to assess the environmental performance of MFIs. Building on results from two years pilot phase executed by members of e-MFP Microfinance and Environment Action Group, and in particular its implementation within the SPI4, and a dedicated joint study between e-MFP and the MIX in 2015, the Action Group has adapted the Green Index. The present version is more user-friendly, balanced and it include, for the first time, environmental quantitative indicators. The Green Index 2.0 has already been integrated into the current (2016) version of SPI4, and it aims to become the standard reference for environmental performance assessment in microfinance.
