International Network
of Sustainable Financial Centers

Sustainable finance is now recognised as one of the megatrends shaping the future of global capital markets. This network will boost cooperation among key global hubs.

The network, convened by UN Environment, was launched in Casablanca in September 2017. It now has 30 members, a real A to Z: Astana, Casablanca, Dublin, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hong Kong, Milan, Liechtenstein, London, Luxembourg, Milan, Paris, Qatar, Seoul, Shanghai, Stockholm, Toronto and Zurich.

Erik Solheim, Executive Director of UN Environment, said:

“Financial centres are the key places in the global economy which determine where capital flows, we’re delighted to convene this network of passionate leaders and aim to make a real difference for climate action and sustainable development.”

„A sustainable orientation of the financial system is essential; at the same time, the energy transition and the transformation process of our economy require appropriate support from the financial industry.”
