“Sweden is a frontrunner in sustainable finance with many Swedish financial institutions already engaged in the green bond market and sustainable asset management. There are several research programs on the topic of sustainable finance hosted by Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets
at SSE. Based on cutting edge research, recommendations for financial institutions and decision makers will be developed, to create conditions for a sustainable financial market to continue to grow,” said Lars Strannegård, President of the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE).
The Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre will combine research competence in sustainability, governance and financial markets held by the SSE and the impact and policy engagement in sustainable development issues held by SEI. This combination of expertise creates a unique and novel platform for research and dialogue between key actors.
After an initial pilot phase of a few months, the Centre’s first research programmes are expected to launch throughout 2018, followed by educational events and programmes for policy makers and executives in the financial sector.
