Special Issue "New Trends in Finance and Investment Related to Sustainability"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050). This special issue belongs to the section "Economic, Business and Management Aspects of Sustainability".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019).
This Special Issue explores new findings and approaches associated with the use of financial tools, concepts, and techniques in achieving a more sustainable future. We encourage submissions investigating the financial performance of sustainable investment strategies, the application of innovative financing schemes and the development of new financial instruments and markets. We also welcome reports on methods for incorporating the three “Es” of sustainability—economics, environment and equity—into managerial and investor decision-making. Finally, we hope to see articles dealing with relatively specialized topics in sustainable finance, e.g., microfinance, carbon finance, social impact bonds, green banking and payments for ecosystem services.
Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to rigorous peer review with the goal of a rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications. Preference will be shown for work that is novel, broadly-applicable and appropriately captures best practices and reflects the “state-of-the-art”.
