    Why does Professor Thorsten Hens give a warning for ESG investors? What are the insights Dr. Nora Pankratz would like investors to act upon? Check out last year's seminar teasers and recordings from the link below!

Sustainable Finance Research Seminar

This seminar explores the fast-evolving area of research in sustainable finance, through a collection of guest presentations, by both senior and junior scholars in the field, and using a variety of topics and methodologies.  These reflect the idea that an interdisciplinary collaboration, seamlessly intertwining finance, economics, and environmental sciences can enhance the potential of the financial system to be leveraged for advancing favorable environmental and social results.


The seminar can be found in the course catalogue of the University of Zurich as DOEC0912.

You can find the programs of past seminars here.
