9780128036150: Handbook of Environmental and Sustainable Finance

The use of financial concepts and tools to shape development is hardly new, but their recent adoption by advocates of sustainable environmental management has created opportunities for innovation in business and regulatory groups. The Handbook of Environmental and Sustainable Finance summarizes the latest trends and attitudes in environmental finance, balancing empirical research with theory and applications. It captures the evolution of environmental finance from a niche scholarly field to a mainstream subdiscipline, and it provides glimpses of future directions for research. Covering implications from the Kyoto and Paris Protocols, it presents an intellectually cohesive examination of problems, opportunities, and metrics worldwide.

  • Introduces the latest developments in environmental economics, sustainable accounting work, and environmental/sustainable finance
  • Explores the effects of environmental regulation on the economy and businesses
  • Emphasizes research about the trade-environmental regulation nexus, relevant for economics and business students

Review:

"Believably the first collection after the Paris climate summit, this handbook fills a gap of reference materials by combining sustainability and finance issues. It examines some of the most pressing challenges in green investment in the Kyoto era, while provides interesting insights into possibly new paradigms for post-Kyoto days. I highly recommend this resource guide to intellectuals who work to make sustainable finance truly sustainable."  --Alastair Marke, FRSA

"This is a timely publication that addresses climate change, water rights and innovative ways to manage and sustain our environment. These issues are covered from a financial and economic perspective, addressing regulation, culture and geography ranging from crowd funding to the role that women play in protecting our global resources."  --Christine Helliar, UniSA Business School

"The breadth of coverage in the handbook underscores the multi-faceted - and heartening - development of this field, in both research and application. From Venice to the Australian Outback, this book locates examples of broader and balanced financial approaches to the valuation and preservation of scarce resources. An essential resource for the field." --Marie Wilson, University of South Australia Business School
