Global Research Alliance for Sustainable Finance and Investment: 3rd Annual Conference
September 8, 7:30 am - September 11, 10:00 pm
The Alliance was founded in 2017 to promote multi-disciplinary academic research on sustainable finance and investment. The Alliance is also developing academic collaboration among researchers working on sustainable finance and nurturing the growth and development of graduate students and junior academics working on these topics.
The Paris Climate Change Agreement and the 2030 Agenda aim to set policymakers, the private sector, and civil society on a common path to advance global environmental sustainability and human wellbeing. In this context, actors and institutions in our financial system have a crucial role to play in catalyzing and supporting relevant solutions, and in ensuring that they do not undermine necessary social, environmental, and economic progress. It is also increasingly important that academic research helps to guide global cooperation efforts in an effective direction. This research must come from a diverse range of approaches and fields in order to constructively address what are extremely complicated and multi-disciplinary problems in the sustainability and finance fields.
The 3rd Annual Conference is being hosted by the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment, a joint center of the Columbia Law School and the Earth Institute. The conference this year will be hosted online.
The registration deadline is September 7th.
There are 3 registration categories:
Available to students, researchers, civil servants, regulators, and civil society practitioners.
Available to those whose papers have been selected for presentation and for panelists.
Available for practitioners working on sustainable finance-related topics in financial institutions or other relevant sectors.
