Sustainable Finance

Financing issues and the interplay of financial market and climate and energy regulation are of key importance for the success of a transformation towards a climate-neutral and sustainable economy. The science platform Sustainable Finance aims to scientifically support the answer to key social, political and private issues by building on a strong cooperation network of five German research institutions. It will provide established and emerging research knowledge, introduce other relevant science actors to the political-public discourse, and identify important gaps in knowledge and knowledge and strategies and proposals for addressing these gaps.

Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
