Subject. This article analyzes the accumulated experience of various foreign countries to create a national system of green financing in Russia. Objectives. The article aims to identify the main instruments and institutions of green financing in world practice and determine the directions of their development in Russia to reduce potential threats to economic development in the long term. Methods. For the study, we used general scientific cognition methods and a systems analysis. Results. The article offers certain recommendations on the development of green financing in Russia. Conclusions and Relevance. In Russia, the trust management industry is poorly developed. The investment policy of management companies does not provide green instruments and directions of green financing. The total volume of green bonds in Russia is at the level of funds of one foreign investment fund. The proposed recommendations can help accelerate the implementation of the ESG concept in all companies.
