The LSESU Green Finance Society is the sole sustainable finance-focused society at LSE. Our mission is to encourage greater consideration of environmental risks in financial decision-making and to equip LSE students with the skills and background knowledge required in this field. United by a shared vision of a climate-secure and sustainable future, our international membership pool represents a mix of engaged undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Educate - Improve the knowledge and understanding of green finance of our members, providing them with practical and targeted knowledge through periodic newsletters and weekly crash-crosses.
Engage - Ensure our members are well informed of the latest trends and opportunities in green finance through monthly events with industry professionals.
Act - Empower our members to act, allowing them to apply their knowledge and develop their investment skills with our proprietary investment fund.
We host a range of events including panel sessions with professionals, industry crash courses, socials and our flagship event - The Sustainable Finance Conference.
