31 May 2016 – Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership’s Centre for Sustainable Finance will review how the world's financial institutions are developing new tools and techniques to integrate emerging environmental risks into decision-making.

The Centre for Sustainable Finance, hosted by Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) has been invited by the People’s Bank of China and the Bank of England to serve as Knowledge Partner to the G20 Green Finance Study Group, initiated under China’s Presidency of the G20 in 2016. The group works under a mandate from the Ministers of Finance and Central Bank Governors of the G20 members.

Through our Centre for Sustainable Finance, we will conduct research and industry engagement to review how financial institutions around the world are developing new tools and techniques to integrate emerging environmental risks into their decision-making.

The finance sector leadership platforms that CISL convenes in the global banking, insurance and investment industries are all being engaged in this research, which is being conducted with colleagues from Cambridge’s Judge Business School.
