Dialogue and Knowledge Development

The Cluster offers a continuous platform for dialogue around topics relating to green and sustainable finance that involves all relevant stakeholder groups, ranging from businesses, the public, lawmakers and regulators to scientists and academics.

Its central objectives – creating transparency and supporting standardisation within the framework of sustainable financial structures – can only be achieved in close cooperation and open exchange with all parties involved.

In addition, only when the majority of the German financial industry benefits from the opportunities of transformation into a more sustainable financial system, does the Cluster consider its own innovation goal fulfilled.

This area of action encompasses events such as conferences, lecture series, workshops and seminars, the commissioning and support of scientific studies, as well as active support of regulatory processes and positioning on current legislative procedures. In addition, the Cluster promotes close cooperation with national players in the sustainable finance movement and interaction with other sustainable finance centres and initiatives in the international arena.

„In order to stop climate change – the effects of which have long since been noticeable – enormous investments are needed. This is why we are embracing the idea of private capital also being invested according to the principles of sustainability. The Cluster aims at further promoting this movement.”
