Making money while doing good. Isn't it amazing? Sustainable Finance has arisen in the past few years as a relevant alternative for economic institutions. It is the right moment to drive the financial system towards social and environmental responsibility. Placed between philanthropy and traditional investment, Sustainable Finance aims to support innovative forms of businesses with intentional, sustainable purposes.
Sustainable Finance encompasses a broad range of activities, including impact investing, ESG screening, and sustainable corporate investment, as well as a large group of actors, such as banks, funds, governments, foundations, multilateral organizations, and family offices.
Our goal at the oikos St.Gallen Sustainable Finance Project is to share with our community what is going on in the field. We visit relevant organizations working with sustainable finance, and we prepare case studies to tell you about the opportunities, challenges and perspectives in the field.
