The FS-UNEP Centre takes a unique approach towards combining research and expertise to finance the transition towards a greener, climate-resilient future that enables societies to prosper. Our mission is to attract new types of investors, particularly by catalysing the private sector financing of sustainable, low-carbon economic activities. The private sector capital plays a crucial role in the race we face in climate change.
The FS-UNEP Centre’s work aims to encourage and support the finance community to scale-up current investments, or to take the first steps into new markets. A key part of this process is to enable the public sector to be able to place policies, regulations and initiatives that overcome existing or perceived investment risks and other barriers perceived by the private sector. The aim is to bring demand and supply of sustainable financing together by promoting smart finance structures and mechanisms.
