Sustainable Finance Working Group
Switzerland is a major financial centre that must drive the transition towards a sustainable economy. In fact, the Swiss financial sector is responsible of 1’100 million tons of CO2—twenty times Switzerland’s domestic emissions (Klima-Allianz). This must change! SYFC, as a youth association aiming to have political influence on climate-related topics, created a working group to raise awareness about sustainable finance among youth and have an influence on political and economic decision-makers. The SYFC has already led various divestment campaigns at universities, but the idea is now to go further by creating a working group with real influence. Several of our members are students and professionals in the field of sustainable finance. We welcome everybody interested in this important topic to join us!
