The SGFC is creating an ecosystem of practitioners working towards capital markets-led solutions to global climate change in Asia and is undertaking new research and educational programmes.
The growing field of climate finance means there will be much collaboration and interdisciplinary work with other institutions, the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London, financial industry partners, and other research initiatives such the CCFI’s involvement in the UK’s Centre for the Greening of Finance & Investment (CGFI).
