Finance for Good
Finance is evolving towards more sustainability to associate financial profitability with an environmental, social, and societal impact. The subarea promotes multidisciplinary academic and applied research on topics broadly defined at the intersection of Finance and ESG issues (Environment, Society, Governance).
“This sub-area's mission is to host events regularly, including but not limited to, topical seminars, panel discussions and workshops on a variety of aspects relating to the broad fields of International, Climate, Sustainable and Green finance. We especially welcome their interactions with each other both in theory and practice, and how they can aid and sustain the growth of economies, institutions, corporations and organizations” says Sara Ain Tommar, the coordinator of the sub-AE.
Ongoing research projects include:
- How to help top executives in ethical decision-making?
- What are the consequences of high-speed algorithms?
- What is the managing bias for effective financial decisions?
