Centre for Sustainable Finance

CISL’s Centre for Sustainable Finance is a research, education and practice hub on financial market reform to help governments, financial institutions and businesses build a sustainable financial system.

The Centre for Sustainable Finance builds on and informs CISL’s work with the financial system, much of which has taken place since the global financial crisis of 2007/08. The combination of high-calibre research, deep industry engagement through CISL’s finance sector leaders groups, and exceptional educational programmes is unusual, if not unique, in the world of sustainable finance.
