This platform aims to put financial markets to work for sustainability and investigate how financial systems can better contribute to sustainable development. It consists of two separate research programs and a number of individual research projects.
Emma Sjöström is the platform manager for sustainable finance and a research fellow at Misum. Her research centers on sustainable investment, and how the financial market can be used as an arena for supporting a sustainable development. Currently, she is conducting research on investor engagement with utility companies on phasing out coal. Emma Sjöström is also writing teaching cases on sustainability and sustainable finance, to be used in the education at the SSE.
