Trade and Supply Chain Finance Program (TSCFP)

TSCFP works to make global trade and supply chains green, resilient, inclusive, transparent, and socially responsible.

The COVID-19 pandemic transformed the global conversation about trade and supply chains, which has led to an important inflection point. The international community now recognizes the imperative to expand thinking about trade and supply chains to see them as important elements in solving global challenges such as climate change, social responsibility, and resiliency. And so does ADB’s TSCFP. While it remains important to close market gaps for trade finance, to support the economic growth, jobs, and development that come from trade, TSCFP’s mandate is to make global trade and supply chains green, resilient, inclusive, transparent, and socially responsible. This website provides insight into how, through a combination of transactions (guarantees and loans) as well as knowledge initiatives and solutions, TSCFP is tackling this ambitious mandate along with its with partners, in each component area of its mandate.

TSCFP is a program of ADB's Private Sector Operations Department.

Gender Equality through ADB Trade Finance Partnerships

ADB’s Trade Finance Program conducted a gender audit among several of its partner banks. The objective of this study was to develop specific, practical, and implementable recommendations to attract, retain and promote more women in banking. This was a joint initiative of ADB's Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department and Private Sector Operations Department funded by the Government of Australia.

ESG Services Directory

There are increasingly critical requirements for supply chains to demonstrate compliance with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and sustainability standards and regulation. This ESG Services Directory provides links to expertise, solutions, and other resources, to help navigate the complex topics and issues around ESG. The Directory is a first step in accessing help with ESG requirements, including identifying specialists in advisory, audit, tracing, tracking due diligence, policy and regulation, technology, and other key areas.
