Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Countries worldwide are trying to create the necessary conditions for the green transformation to become a fact. An example is the actions taken by the European Union, which has adopted, among other measures, documents such as the European Green Deal, supporting the achievement of climate neutrality. CO2 emissions from pollution sources such as transport, energy, and heating constitute a fundamental problem. Therefore, one of the challenges facing global society remains the transition to and implementation of renewable energy sources and, consequently, energy transformation and energy market transition. This transformation is closely related to issues such as sustainable development and growth. In the era of digitization, including the age of digital finance, attention is drawn to their positive and negative impact on carbon footprint/ On the one hand, digitization means a lower risk of deforestation. Conversely, for example in terms of, cryptocurrency markets, their development exert a high level of demand on energy consumption.

This SI aims to present and promote research examining the relationship between sustainable financial development and growth in the context of implementing Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those directly related to supporting energy efficiency and energy transition and assessing financial and economic instruments supporting the green transformation. Preference will be given to articles with a solid analytical layer, especially a quantitative research component.
