Sustainable Finance

Sustainable Finance

“Sustainable finance looks at how finance (investing and lending) interacts with environmental, social and corporate governance factors and thus has the potential to move from finance as a goal (profit maximization) to finance as a means to a greater good, serving the society and its citizens, and tackling environmental challenges… Finance is about anticipating catastrophic events and incorporating expectations in today’s valuations for investment decisions.” - Dirk Schoenmaker and Willem Schramade, authors of Principles of Sustainable Finance.
