The Advisory Council of the Green Finance Alliance consists of national and international experts in the field of Green Finance – for example from universities, non-university scientific institutions, international initiatives and interest groups.

Persons from Green Finance Alliance member companies cannot become part of the advisory board. Its composition is the responsibility of the Steering Committee. The Advisory Council will assist the Steering Committee and the Coordinating Office in particular with the substantive and science-based development of the Green Finance Alliance and with questions about methods. The Council has a purely advisory function and thus carries no decision-making authority.
