About us

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.

Our aims:

  1. 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.
  2. Engage - Ensure our members are well informed of the latest trends and opportunities in green finance through monthly events with industry professionals.
  3. Act - Empower our members to act, allowing them to apply their knowledge and develop their investment skills with our proprietary investment fund.

We are proud to be named the 'Most Improved Society' by LSESU in 2020 and to be a Gold Star Award recipient! Click here to recap the astounding year we had!

We host a range of events including panel sessions with professionals, industry crash courses, socials and our flagship event - The Green Finance Summit. In support of WWF, we also adopted an Adélie penguin and named her Snowdrop!

Take part in Gekko Investments, our student-led initiative inspiring research into socially and environmentally sustainable equities. Become one of our equity or macro analysts to create stock pitches and guide long-term investment strategies.
