About us

The European Chair for Sustainable Development and Climate Transition is a research body hosted at Sciences Po Paris.

Our mission is to study implementation pathways for sustainable policies and the climate transition in Europe and globally, and to support the European Green Deal’s ambitious objectives. To this end, we are committed to establishing a broad network of actors who will contribute to research, education, and discussions on important topics such as just transition, climate mitigation and adaptation, energy transition, and green finance.
