Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre
A unique initiative by the Government of Sweden, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). The centre was active during the period 2018-2022.
About the centre
In December 2022, the Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre (SSFC) transformed into SEI Finance for Sustainable Development Programme, running 2023-2025.
SSFC aimed to accelerate and promote the shift in capital investments required to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and global climate targets during the period 2018-2022.
The Centre was a unique collaboration between Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). This brought together a leading research university in financial markets and economics, and a highly ranked institute working on environmental impact and broader sustainable development issues.
SSFC collaborated with the SSE on training programs in sustainable finance and on specific research projects. SSFC was hosted by SEI and the core of the SSFC’s research and engagement work was performed by SEI.
SSFC delivered sustainability and sustainable finance expertise, practice driven research, education, and policy engagement on sustainability, economics, and finance.
What we do
Our mission is to help accelerate the allocation of capital to truly sustainable economic activities required to deliver the SDGs and global climate targets. We do so by conducting solutions-oriented research that critically examines the financial landscape and provides expertise on the key sustainability transitions our economies must undertake.
We build capacity through training and engagement. We have a special focus on advancing the sustainability agenda for developing countries. We engage with relevant change agents to provide sustainability expertise to the financial sector and guidance to policymakers on policies needed for this transition.
