Mission: The Sustainable Finance Initiative (SFI) works to scale up and accelerate the flow of capital toward  the decarbonization of global systems by developing and deploying innovative policies and financial mechanisms, educating leaders, and engaging with the global policy and finance community.

Focus areas: We approach our work across five focus areas: (1) catalyzing private investment, (2) energy business innovation, (3) risk metrics and management, (4) stranded assets and just transitions, and (5) systems transformation and integration.

Model: SFI engages faculty, fellows, and students in projects within our five focus areas, though some projects cut across multiple themes. Every project is grounded by a question or problem sourced from the real world. SFI faculty and fellows work directly with key stakeholders where problems are located, and together we drive toward an implementation pathway so that our work has a measurable impact.
