Frankfurt School - UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance (FS UNEP)

Frankfurt School – UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance helps to develop cost-effective ways to reduce carbon emissions from energy supply and use by mobilising finance for climate and sustainable energy investments and strengthening of their associated markets. The centre works with financial institutions to develop technical know-how, innovative financing approaches and new forms of entrepreneurial and end-user finance. It serves as UNEP’s main knowledge hub for sustainable energy and climate finance.

In order to address climate change-related challenges, the Frankfurt School aims to provide leadership in advancing policy-relevant knowledge about sustainable energy and climate finance. It promotes innovative solutions to climate and sustainable energy finance. With the view to fostering long-term transformational change towards a low carbon economy, the centre’s work is designed to encourage and support the finance community in taking the first steps of active engagement working with key actors in finance, government and industry to improve their capacities for mobilising investment in climate mitigation and adaptation technologies.
