Our Mission: To connect academia and industry to work on solutions where finance is used as a lever to promote a sustainable future. 


We facilitate continuous dialogue between Columbia’s graduate students, faculty and practitioners where finance is used as fuel to stoke the engine of Sustainable Development Goals. Through this we prepare our members for careers in sustainability.


CSFPN takes pride in connecting Academia with Industry. Our events provide members and faculty a platform to engage with industry experts, while industry gains access to talent pool of next generation of Sustainable Financiers.


We conduct research to support industry to overcome challenges in scaling sustainable finance initiatives. Research is guided by a Faculty Advisor from Columbia University and an Industry Mentor.
