Geneva
A unique ecosystem at the heart of a global movement

Geneva is uniquely positioned to address the urgent challenges crystallized around the UN’s 17 SDGs, thanks to its one-of-a-kind ecosystem: a global financial centre, combined with a hub for multilateral diplomacy, world-class universities and forward-looking policy-makers.

Synergy and communication

The mission of SFG is to connect, support and promote this exceptional community, which has helped put Geneva on the map as one of the world’s top centres for sustainable finance. We complement our core activities with special projects aimed at maximizing synergies across the sustainable finance ecosystem.

Why sustainability matters: Re-inventing finance for a fast-changing world

The unprecedented pace of change faced by our societies today is creating exciting new opportunities for innovation in finance, from green bonds and 2.0 portfolio management to crowdfunding, blockchain and fintech.
These innovations reflect shifting individual priorities and expectations (for instance, 30% of European millennials have never used a brick-and-mortar bank), as well as the urgent global needs of our Planet, as crystallized by the adoption of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

At a time of rapid transformation for the entire financial sector, we believe that sustainable finance, which prioritizes long-term environmental and social impact, will gradually become the “new normal”.

Sustainable finance integrates environmental, social, governance and development criteria into investment decisions, for the lasting benefit of both stakeholders and society at large.
