Company Management and Sustainable Finance, Performance Measurement of Sustainability Practices and Corporate Financial Performance

Sustainable Finance is more important nowadays ever. Sustainable Finance gains increasing worldwide attention from financial markets, political actors and the broader public alike. Its objective is to take into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria when making financial decisions and designing financial services, thus expanding the benefit to society. Academics and practitioners, however, are questioning the role sustainable finance plays, which goes beyond the primary function of finance to fund the economy. Because of the importance of extra-financial issues, the investment community has noted a shift in focus from shareholders’ to stakeholders’ values. A new approach of finance is thus needed to answer questions related to green and sustainable finance. Financial markets, corporate finance and corporate governance have to integrate extra-financial aspects into financial decision making processes.

Many issues remain unresolved and questions unanswered:

  • How to allocate funds optimally in terms of financial and non-financial performance, how to finance the economy and satisfy a variety of objectives of stakeholders from a more global point of view?
  • What are the consequences of ESG driven fund allocations in terms of risk management for corporations and investors?
  • Which asset pricing methods can be proposed to value innovative sustainability-oriented financial instruments?
  • What is the role of policy makers in developing green and sustainable finance?

This Special Issue aims to answer these questions and addresses theoretical and empirical issues related to recent developments and new directions of sustainable finance. It will advance our understanding of how financial products support investments that benefit the environment and promote a carbon-free economy. It will also contribute to the development of a more comprehensive analysis of the role sustainable finance plays in shaping firm and investor decisions. Papers will draw on recent theoretical and empirical research that explores business ethics, corporate social responsibility (CSR), and socially responsible investing in connection with sustainable finance. The expected results will be of interest and relevance to academics, practitioners and policy makers. The Special Issue welcomes contributions from a broad range of fields related to finance.
