Centre for Climate & Sustainability
The Centre for Climate and Sustainability, an initiative of HFC, will focus on the promotion and marketing of sustainable financing across the board, including:
- Sustainable investment
- The financing of sustainable projects
- The financing of the transition to sustainable energy and clean tech
- The trading and financing of carbon emission rights and alternative energy
The Centre for Climate and Sustainability will concentrate on knowledge related to these specific issues and act as a gateway on behalf of the financial industry. In conjunction with the Duisenberg School of Finance, the Centre has also taken the lead in setting up a specific degree course in Finance and Sustainability. This course will be integrated into the existing Master’s programme, and as from 2011 will also be offered as a separate executive module. The Duisenberg School of Finance also intends to carry out a systematic assessment of all current research into finance and sustainability and will expand and build on this research in order to strengthen its role as a knowledge centre.
