Sustainable banking and finance

Research lead: Elisa Cavezzali

Sustainability in Banking and Finance research stream analyses specific measures aimed at increasing and supporting investments in sustainable projects by integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into risk management and the time horizon assessed by financial operators.

The research group addresses new challenges that the increasing sensitivity to ESG parameters raises in the financial system, banking, and investment services industries.

Our team studies how new sustainability regulation and practices affect corporate performance, condition firms’ access to the credit market and financial resources in general.
