The world depends on global finance making the right choices to deliver positive change and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

The Global Ethical Finance Initiative (GEFI) has become the hub at the centre of the ethical finance movement. We curate independent conversations among a broad coalition of financial services stakeholders, as well as delivering practical projects. We are the partner for action on ethical finance.
