The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a strategic public-private partnership between UNEP and the global financial sector. UNEP FI works with over 200 financial institutions, signatories to UNEP Statement of Commitment by Financial Institutions on Sustainable Development, and a range of partners and organizations, to embed environmental, social and governance considerations in financial decision-making. Through its training programme, UNEP FI promotes the adoption of sustainability practices by financial institutions and the finance sector at large and builds capacity.

UNEP FI’s sustainable finance training services are part of its effort to carry out the mission to "identify, promote, and realise the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practice at all levels of financial institution operations”. The primary aim of these services is to raise awareness and to build capacity in sustainable finance amongst UNEP FI members and other financial institutions, as well as relevant stakeholders in governments, NGOs and Academia, especially in developing countries and emerging markets.
