Special Issue "Advances in Sustainable Finance"

In 2015, the COP21 reached a historic agreement on the global goal of keeping global warming temperatures from increasing by more than 2 °C by 2100. Shortly before COP21, the United Nations and member countries defined the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the 2030 Agenda. To achieve these objectives, the financial sector has its role to play by directing capital flows towards firms and investment projects that will enable these social and environmental objectives to be attained. To do this, for nearly 20 years, the financial sector has been developing reporting and performance measurement tools based on environmental (E), social (S), and governance (G) indicators. Despite numerous efforts by regulators and actors in the financial sector, the need to have clear and common benchmarks has become essential for a successful environmental, social, and economic transition. It is in this context that we launch this Special Issue on “Advances in Sustainable Finance”, with the objective to publish high-quality research on sustainable finance, ESG investing, socially responsible investments (SRIs), impact investing, ESG disclosure, green bonds, and any other topics related to social and sustainable finance. We pay particular attention to the importance of compliance and big data in sustainable finance. We encourage the submission of both quantitative and qualitative research works.
