Driving climate action requires investment and financial solutions. Shifting from business-as-usual to greener economic activities requires policy changes, technology improvements and funding amongst others. The net benefits of investing in climate solutions far outweigh the costs. The FS-UNEP Centre works towards sourcing and directing funding flows to critical projects that make long-lasting impacts and offer compelling net benefits.
The Centre is a strategic cooperation between Frankfurt School and the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) since 2009. The aim of the Centre is to promote public and private sector investment in greenhouse gas mitigation and climate adaptation in developing and emerging countries, as well as in industrialized countries. As a “think-and-do-tank”, the Centre combines research, teaching, training and consulting services.
