This month as we strive to make sense of the increasingly complex world around us, the “Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking” (JSFB) delves into the world of “Learning” – what do we know about the nuances of investment process and sustainable finance, and how can we can we learn about critical Environmental, Social and Governance issues to better guide our decisions?
Among the many viewpoints across the ESG landscape, we seek to understand both the macro and micro backdrop for global markets. Our contributors address everything from Ed Tech and Education Venture Funds, to investments in corporate research and life cycle assessment as an investment risk mitigation tool. And for those interested in both earning and investing, we call for a “New Financial Literacy” to be embraced by those who want to maximize impact and the potential for capitalism and corporate profitability in the process.
