Call for Papers European Responsible Investment & Institutions Conference (ERIIC)

01-09-15 | Call for papers |

To what extent and how can capitalist structures and processes foster, encourage, or facilitate business
environmental responsibility? This question is a vigorously debated issue with a long history, particularly given  the increasing influence of, and research on, sustainable investment. In recent years, sustainable investment  practices have increasingly gained importance in capital markets. In fact, stock market data show that  sustainable investments have reached US$ 10.6 trillion globally.

However, many examples can be found which illustrate that, in spite of increasing concerns about environmental and closely related social and governance issues, there has not been a significant global shift towards greater sustainability. The 3rd European Responsible Investment & Institutions Conference will address this situation and intends to broaden the academic debate about sustainable finance.
