The FS-UNEP Centre, a strategic cooperation between UN Environment and Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, is Frankfurt School’s in-house think-and-do-tank for climate and sustainable energy finance. Our overall objective is to facilitate public and private financing of sustainable economic activities and projects. Our services include financial consulting, policy advice, research and education. We support financial institutions, businesses, governments and economies to scale-up sustainable finance.

Finance is at the core of all our activities, and while we have a reputation for unbiased analysis and applying a mix of economic and financial assessments, we always consider the larger economic and political context in our work. Creative and unorthodox thinking combined with a strong focus on the project specific reality are part of our daily work, as we aim to provide conceptually sound and practical recommendations and solutions. We offer work within a dynamic, international team and a stimulating environment with close ties to commercial banks and the financial industry as well as governmental organisations.
