International Network for Sustainable Financial Policy Insights, Research and Exchange

Driving a global, purpose-driven research agenda for greening the financial system

New Report

Central banking and supervision in the Biosphere

Final Report from the NGFS-INSPIRE Study Group on Biodiversity and Financial Stability sets an agenda for action on biodiversity loss, financial risk and system stability.



We are an independent and global, philanthropy-supported research network that provides gold-standard research and insights on financial oversight of climate- and environment-related risks.

We are a designated research stakeholder of the Central Banks and Supervisors Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS).

Our Activities

Through commissions, funding, and partnerships, our work aims to catalyse sustainable finance by developing climate- and environment-related financial risk management in order to mobilise the finance needed to support the transition to a sustainable economy.

32 commissioned projects

Through open calls for proposals, the research we commission advances understanding of the appropriate tools, methodologies, and empirical and theoretical evidence required to enhance ambition to advance the sustainable financial policy agenda.

Our portfolio is organised into six thematic areas that have been purposefully designed to complement the five workstreams of the NGFS

3 programmatic workstreams

Certain aspects of climate change and environmental degradation that require urgent action by financial institutions are especially complex and require a coordinated, inter-disciplinary, and multi-stakeholder approach.

Our programmes convene researchers and central bank partners from across the globe to collaboratively tackle specific priorities.
