About the Sustainable Finance Education Charter

Professional bodies play key roles in shaping and defining this knowledge and understanding, as well as the standards, norms, values, and practices in their respective professions

Recognising this, in 2020 the Green Finance Education Charter was established, relaunched with a broader scope as the Sustainable Finance Education Charter in 2023 in the UK Government’s 2nd Green Finance Strategy. The Charter is the UK’s main policy mechanism to improve sustainability-related skills and expertise to support green and sustainable finance policy delivery.

The Charter is a partnership between the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, 14 leading, global professional bodies with more than 1 million members between us, and the UK’s Green Finance Institute.
