Singapore Green Finance Centre



SGFC’s foundational and multi-disciplinary research draws on the respective strengths of Imperial and SMU in climate science, financial economics and sustainable investing. We develop strategies for policymakers and financial institutions to support Asia’s transition to a low-carbon future. Our research, co-created with the industry to ensure applicability and relevance, encompasses three key themes: transforming businesses by integrating climate-related data and ESG considerations into decision-making, designing policies and new initiatives to enhance the efficiency of green finance markets, and catalysing the development of green finance solutions.
