Today, Sustainable Finance Geneva, in collaboration with the Canton of Geneva, International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the SDG Lab, has published a new edition of the Geneva Sustainable Finance Map. This map shows 248 actors based in Geneva and its surroundings that are active in sustainable finance.
The Graduate Institute’s Centre for Finance and Development among the core actors in sustainable finance
The Graduate Institute’s Centre for Finance and Development is listed among the academic institutions focussing on fostering knowledge on sustainable finance.
Since its creation in 2012, this research centre has served as a leading international and interdisciplinary exchange platform for finance and development-related topics, with a strong focus on sustainable finance. The Centre for Finance and Development aims at strengthening the dialogue and cooperation among academics, international organisations, NGOs, diplomatic missions, financial institutions and the private sector. Furthermore, it is also committed to transmitting knowledge to students and professionals.
Geneva as a global hub for sustainable finance
As the non-profit organisation Sustainable Finance Geneva points out, “Geneva is uniquely positioned to address the urgent challenges crystallised in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals thanks to its one-of-a-kind ecosystem which is comprised of a global financial centre, a hub for multilateral diplomacy, world-class universities and forward-looking policymakers.”.
Its map includes actors in nine different sectors, ranging from banks and asset managers to intergovernmental and non-profit organisations. According to Sustainable Finance Geneva, the map “illustrates the vast potential for collaboration between players from Geneva’s right bank – home to the UN and many international organizations – and its left bank, where the financial centre is located”.
