The NGFS currently brings together 36 central banks and supervisors – representing five continents, half of global greenhouse gas emissions and the supervision of two thirds of the global systemically important banks and insurers. GRASFI currently brings together 22 global research universities to promote multi-disciplinary academic research on sustainable finance and investment.”
