Oxford Sustainable Finance Group
We need to make sure that all financial decision making takes account of the environment and of sustainability. And this needs to happen very, very quickly. The Oxford Sustainable Finance Group is a world-leading centre focused on aligning finance with global environmental sustainability. We work very closely with stakeholders across the financial system - banks, asset managers asset owners, insurers, supervisors, central banks, to help them to talk about these problems and co-create solutions and integrate climate change into financial decision making around the world.
We achieve our mission through pioneering research, through teaching and also through engagement, training the next generation of PhD students, to undergraduates, to very senior executives. If we're going to green the global financial system, we need the best people to have the knowledge, to have the networks, to be able to influence.
The community is growing. It's one of the largest concentrations of researchers working on sustainable finance anywhere in the world. We work to create the future of sustainable finance.
