The Cluster offers a platform for dialogue on topics relating to green and sustainable finance and involves all relevant stakeholders such as corporates, policymakers, civil society, and academics.Its central objectives – creating transparency and supporting standardisation with regard to sustainability on financial markets – can only be achieved in close cooperation and open exchange with all parties involved.

In addition, the Cluster considers its own innovation goal only as fulfilled if most of the German financial industry benefits from the opportunities of transformation towards more sustainable financial systems.

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 international sustainable finance centres and initiatives.

„Eine nachhaltige Ausrichtung des Finanzsystems ist unverzichtbar; gleichzeitig bedürfen die Energiewende und der Transformationsprozess unserer Wirtschaft passender Unterstützung durch die Finanzindustrie.”
