FS-UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance
The FS-UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance was set up at Frankfurt School in 2009 with the aim of encouraging public and private investment in climate adaptation initiatives and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in developing, emerging and industrialised nations. The UNEP Centre co-publishes the Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment report.
The Green Finance Cluster was founded by Frankfurt School in a joint venture with the Hessian Ministry of Economics, Wirtschafts- und Infrastrukturbank Hessen (WIBank), the KfW banking group, the Center for Financial Studies at Frankfurt’s Goethe University, the Verein für Umweltmanagement und Nachhaltigkeit in Finanzinstituten (Association for Environmental Management and Sustainability in Financial Institutions – VfU) and the TechQuartier business incubator. The cluster is based at Frankfurt School and hosted by the FS-UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance.
