By Richard Howard

24th November 2019

The number of not-for-profit organisations devoted to green and sustainable finance is ever expanding. This simple post aims to try and keep track of these organisations. The definition of green finance or sustainable finance use here is quite broad enabling organisations which represent other things beside the environment to be listed. This includes some ethical finance, ESG and impact investing organisations.

If the list is missing any organisations etc, which you think should be included, please contact us. The list is biased towards UK and European groups at the moment, especially the universities section. Equally if any of these organisations have ceased to function or become defunct please get in touch:
