EBI proudly announces that the first book of its new series has been published with Palgrave Macmillan. The new series, “EBI Studies in Banking and Capital Markets Law”, is edited by Prof. Danny Busch (Radboud University Nijmegen), Prof. Christos V. Gortsos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens) and Prof. Antonella Sciarrone Alibrandi (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore), all Members of the EBI Academic Board.
The first book of the series is titled “Sustainable Finance in Europe: Corporate Governance, Financial Stability and Financial Markets” and was edited by Prof. Danny Busch (Radboud University Nijmegen), Prof. Guido Ferrarini (University of Genoa) and Prof. Seraina Grünewald (Radboud University Nijmegen). All three editors are also Members of the EBI Academic Board.
The book should be seen in the context of the ambitious climate-related and environmental goals set by the European Union (EU). In this respect, and according to the 2018 European Commission’s Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth, the financial sector should play a key role in this ‘green’ transition by bringing together supply and demand for ‘green’ capital, supporting thus sustainable finance.
The aim of this book on Sustainable Finance in Europe is to collect views of expert academics and practitioners on the latest regulatory developments in sustainable finance in the EU. The volume deliberately includes a wide range of cutting-edge aspects. Although it mainly focuses on the green transition and environmental sustainability, it also addresses social and governance issues, i.e. all so-called ESG issues. The individual contributions deploy different methods of analysis, including theoretical contributions on the status quo of macro-financial research, as well as law and economics approaches, encouraging thus interdisciplinary readership.
The book chapters are grouped in a thematic way, covering the following areas: (i) General Aspects, including the impact of the current COVID-19 crisis on the sustainability agenda (Part I); (ii) Sustainable Finance and Corporate Governance (Part II); (iii) Sustainable Finance and Systemic Risk (Part III); and (iv) Sustainable Finance and Financial Markets (Part IV).
