Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Guest Editors are inviting submissions to a Special Issue on Sustainable Financial and Economic Development on Greenhouse Gas Emission. The existing body of literature does not include the role of sustainable finance, especially sustainable financial systems, in influencing financial and economic development and as a result on environmental quality. This Special Issue will deal with: the impact of sustainable financial systems (public, commercial) on mitigating greenhouse gas emissions; the role of sustainable finance and financial markets in reducing greenhouse gas emissions; the relationship among sustainable finance and sustainable economic development and greenhouse gas emissions, business models of financial institutions, and companies and their impact on sustainable financial and economic development; the role of the financial market in supporting green consumerism and reducing greenhouse gas emissions; sustainable economic, financial development and ESG risk; sustainable financial and economic development on greenhouse gas emission and social and environmental consequences; the drivers of sustainable financial and economic development; and key challenges and prospects of sustainable financial, economic development and greenhouse gas emissions.

Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:

  • The relationship between sustainable economic, financial development and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Interdependencies between sustainable finance and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • A sustainable approach to the financial market and energy market toward reduction of greenhouse gas emissions;
  • The role of sustainable financial systems in supporting the development of pro-environmental technologies and their impact on greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Activities that build an offer of sustainable financial products and services that will encourage entrepreneurs and households to green consumerism practices,
  • Sustainable financing of start-ups and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • The role of sustainable finance in the decarbonization process and climate change;
  • The role of sustainable finance in financing sustainable adaptation;
  • The drivers of sustainable economic and financial development and the consequences for greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Digitalization and transition of financial markets, the economy, and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Green growth, circular economy, finance, and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Energy finance and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Environmental taxes, sustainable economic and financial development, and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Economic transition, renewable energy sources, environmentally friendly products and services, and their financing in the context of greenhouse gas emissions;
  • SDGs, sustainable finance, and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Sustainable financial and economic development on greenhouse gas emission and labor market and public policies;
  • IT solutions, sustainable financial and economic development and greenhouse gas emissions.

Title: Financial and energy markets - a sustainable approach. Perspective of European countries belonging to the OECD
Authors: Magdalena Ziolo; Iwona Bąk; Anna Spoz; Beata Filipiak; Jarosław Kozuba; Piotr Niedzielski

Abstract: This paper sets out to explore the relationships between a sustainable energy market and a sustainable financial market and energy market based on Eurostat and OECD data from 2008, 2014 and 2018, as related to the energy market (EM - 14 indicators, sustainable energy (SE - 13 indicators) and sustainable finance (SF - 9 indicators) for 28 European countries belonging to the OECD. The study used a taxonomic development measure based on the reference method in the positional approach using the Weber median. The results confirmed the existence of a positive correlation between the energy market and the financial market in a sustainable approach. Countries with a sustainable energy market, and thus a high energy efficiency achieved as a result of renewable energy policies, ranked among the first in the comparison, similarly to countries with a sustainable financial market, which also ranked at the top. Therefore, a balanced energy market correlates with a balanced financial market in country rankings. No such relationship was demonstrated for all three categories at the same time, i.e. energy market, sustainable energy market and sustainable finance.
