Frankfurt School UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance
FS-UNEP bridges knowledge and capacity gaps among financial stakeholders to effect positive change and neutralize the climate crisis. Driving climate action means creative “out of the box” thinking. International communities have committed to maintaining global temperature increase well below 2°C and to becoming carbon-neutral in the 2nd half of the century. This requires an unprecedented reorientation of global economic activities. We at the FS-UNEP Centre work on solutions to effect positive change in perspectives and to help institutions, businesses, governments and economies to embrace this change.
Driving climate action requires investment and financial solutions. Shifting from business-as-usual to greener economic activities requires policy changes, technology improvements and funding amongst others. The net benefits of investing in climate solutions far outweigh the costs. The FS-UNEP Centre works towards sourcing and directing funding flows to critical projects that make long-lasting impacts and offer compelling net benefits.
