Call for Papers - Review of Finance Special Issue on Sustainable Finance 

Sustainable finance is an increasingly important topic. Within companies, sustainability is no longer an ancillary issue confined to CSR departments, but a CEO-level issue fundamental to the core business. Within the investment industry, sustainability used to be the exclusive domain of “socially responsible investors” who had social as well as financial objectives, but is now mainstream, including among investors with purely financial goals. More broadly, the sustainability of business has a crucial impact on how it is viewed by wider society, including policymakers and citizens, including its social license to operate.
