Bank 2030 Project: Research participation opportunity

last modified Apr 30, 2019 04:08 PM
25 April 2019 – Would you like to participate in a research project on the role of banks in financing the low carbon economy? Researchers at the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) are looking for participants for this new study.

Finance districtThe Bank 2030 project is being run by CISL’s Centre for Sustainable Finance with members of its Banking Environment Initiative (BEI) to ask the question: “How can banks accelerate the financing of the low carbon economy?” The focus of this project is to find out how the financing of solutions to reduce GHG emissions from economic activities can be accelerated, by examining what best practice exists already; what barriers the banking industry and corporates face; and how to overcome them.

The research team is looking for practitioners to participate in interviews to complement this exciting research project and would like your help to understand the topic form the corporate perspective. 

If you are working in one of the following sectors and you have been working to reduce GHG emissions from your operations, or transform your organisation’s emissions profile (ideally with experience in financing low carbon projects) we would be extremely grateful if you could take part in an interview.

Sectors the interviewee works in:

  • Transportation
  • Energy
  • The built environment (building management or construction)
  • Agriculture and/or land use management
  • Industry (cement or steel)

The interview will be conducted in person or via phone for about an hour. The content will be treated confidentially. If we would like to quote you directly, we will seek consent.

If you, or your organisation, are interested in participating in this research project please write to  in the coming days. She can answer any questions you have and outline further steps. The interviews would need to be finished by end of June.
