The Centre for Climate Finance & Investment undertakes cutting-edge research on how capital markets are responding to global climate change.
Helping investors and policymakers overcome the lack of clarity about risk and opportunities arising in a changing climate. Our research covers five workstreams: Climate Risk Scenarios and Stress Testing; Nature; Clean Energy Investing; Climate Finance Markets and Instruments; and Adaptation and Resilience.
The Centre works closely with the Grantham Institute – Climate Change and the Environment and the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis. Imperial College Business School launched the MSc Climate Change, Management & Finance in September 2016 in partnership with the Grantham Institute.
