Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre

Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre (SSFC) aimed to accelerate and promote the shift in capital investments required to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals and climate targets.

The centre was an agile and aligned platform that shaped, tailored and delivered expertise in sustainable finance to maximize visibility and impact. It was a go-to partner for impartial research, knowledge and capacity building on current and future issues in sustainable finance.

SSFC was a unique collaboration between SEI and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). It 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. Together with Stockholm Green Digital Finance, SSFC combined research, education, and innovation on sustainability, finance and new technologies.

The financial sector must be part of making life on this planet sustainable. It already plays a role in channeling investments into green technologies, energy-efficient buildings, and climate-friendly transport. Now governments and financial institutions must pick up the pace and ensure investments are delivering across the entire agenda set out by the Sustainable Development Goals and across all geographies, from the most developed economies or in rapidly growing emerging markets.

The Centre’s vision was to support financial actors in their crucial role in changing our economies and to make the necessary shift in capital allocation to deliver the sustainable development agenda.

Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre achieved this by finding innovative solutions, developing tools, through research and capacity building.

The main activities of Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre pivoted around three central pillars:

  1. SSFC performed demand driven research and pushed the frontiers to understand how financial flows can support the implementation of the SDGs and how we can move towards sustainable and more long-term decisions.
  2. SSFC trained and educated professionals to incorporate sustainability into financial decisions.
  3. SSFC engaged with relevant change agents and actors in the financial sector to deliver solutions and innovations in close cooperation and collaboration across different stakeholder groups within the sector.
