The project “Climate Change, Financial Markets and Innovation” (CFI), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research ( BMBF) addressed these shortcomings, and centers the financial sector and its actors. The Sustainable Business Institute (SBI), designed and implemented the agenda of the CFI project. More than 20 scientific articles and 40 reports have been published to inform the discussion about the role of financial markets in adapting to and mitigation climate change.
