This platform explores how financial markets can be put to work for a sustainable development. The financial system plays a key role for reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Some of the key questions this platform is addressing are:
- The transformation needed for us to reach Agenda 2030 requires large amounts of capital to be shifted, for example to make the necessary investments in infrastructure and low-carbon solutions. How can this happen?
- How do we include more long-term perspectives into financial analysis and decision making?
- How do we include environmental, social and governance issues in financial models and into the capital market conversation?
- How efficient are different sustainable investment strategies? And what are their impacts on the economy?
The research platform consists of two separate research programs: Mistra Financial Systems and Vinnova Green Finance. Additionally, the platform includes a number of individual research projects.
