Human capital: SFG’s key resource

From the dreams of its 17 founding members to an 800-person strong community today, SFG continues to grow. Our committed members came together and are the organization’s driving force.

A pool of experts who volunteer more than 400 hours a year

SFG members (specialists and non-specialists) have backgrounds in banking, finance and consulting, in NGOs, international organizations and associations, federal and cantonal authorities, multinationals, universities, and legal firms. Together, they volunteer more than 400 hours of their time per year, supporting us with their expertise. We are deeply grateful to them for their commitment.

A benchmark platform

By bringing together the key players from the various areas of sustainable finance, SFG creates a broad platform that enables a better understanding of the sector and its complementarities – be this Socially Responsible Investment (SRI), Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) research, microfinance or impact investing, social entrepreneurship, or indeed philanthropy.

Transparent governance where individual skills are valued

SFG has established transparent governance, with a Strategy & Surveillance Committee, an Executive Bureau, a management team, as well as project teams and commissions. These bodies meet once a year during the General Assembly.
