The strength of the Center of Competence for Sustainable Finance lies in collaboration. It is one of the biggest university centers dedicated to the research in sustainable finance and brings together approximately 30 researchers spanning fields from finance, law, informatics, political sciences to geography – for example.

The Center of Competence for Sustainable Finance was launched in January 2020 as part of the UZH Sustainable Finance Seminar and has since focused on kicking off collaborative research projects. The activities of CCSF include: 

The creation of scientific knowledge, such as research on reproducible metrics that account for sustainability and risk as well as the mechanisms behind individual and collective financial and economic behavior.

The strengthening scientific interdisciplinarity in order to tap into interconnected challenges that go beyond the scope of a single scientific discipline.

The development of education opportunities which ensure that sustainability counts in decision-making and that current and future leaders are educated on the nuances and approaches of the field.
