This textbook provides an introduction to environmental finance and investments. The current situation raises fundamental questions that this book aims to address. Under which conditions could carbon pricing schemes contribute to a significant decrease in emissions? What are the new investment strategies that the Kyoto Protocol and the emerging carbon pricing schemes around the world should promote? In the context of carbon regulation through emission trading schemes, what is the trade-off between production, technological changes, and pollution? What is the nature of the relation between economic growth and the environment? This book intends to provide students and practitioners with the knowledge and the theoretical tools necessary to answer these and other related questions in the context of the so-called environmental finance theory. This is a new research strand that investigates the economic, financial, and managerial impacts of carbon pricing policies.

Environmental finance, particularly energy efficiency and renewable energy (EERE) finance, can and should serve as an interface to other sub-sectors of financial sector promotion such as microfinance, housing finance or agricultural finance. For example, existing clients of financial institutions include small and medium-sized enterprises and households, and these are often suffering from high energy prices or have no access to sustainable energy supply. At the same time, these clients are vulnerable to extreme weather events, and often hit hardest by the impact of climate change. There are many other examples which show that the financial sector has an enormous potential to support “green” investments. In order to tap this potential on a sustainable basis, it is important to have a sound understanding which role financial institutions can and should play. This book provides a blend of well-founded professional and scientific perspectives on the potential of Environmental finance in developing and transition countries.

This book illustrates the impact that a focus on environmental and social issues has on both de-risking assets and fostering innovation. Including impact as a new cornerstone of the investment triangle requires investors and clients to align interests and values and understand needs. This alignment process functions as a catalyst for transforming organizational culture within an organization and therefore initiates the external impact of the organization, but also its internal transformation, which in turn escalates the creation of impact. Describing how culture is the social glue permeating all disciplines of an organization, the book demonstrates how organizational alignment can be achieved in order to allow strategic speed, innovation and learning, and provides examples of how impact can be achieved and staff mobilized It particularly focuses on impact investing, impact entrepreneurship, innovation, de-risking asset, green investment solutions and investor movements to counteract climate change and implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, highlighting culture, communication, and strategy.

This book provides empowering examples on how capital can pave the way toward an integrally sustainable future when guided by the equal integration of people, planet, and profit, paired with passion and purpose. The fact that more than 30 percent of all assets under managing are already invested with environmental, governance, and/or social criteria in mind indicates that we are passing the tipping point toward the implementation of both the UN SDG as well as COP21. In the face of the current geo-political crises and climate challenges, the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and of the Paris climate accord (COP21) signed in 2015 by 195 states have become an unavoidable must. Yet, investors, business people, politicians, economists, the civil society, and political leaders are daunted by the task at hand. This is the empowering response of holistically thinking impact investors, business leaders, and economists to the call to action formulated by 32 Club of Rome members in their book “Come on: Capitalism, Short-termism and the Destruction of the Planet,” the report to the Club of Rome published by Springer. The book demonstrates through concrete investment case studies that it is not only possible but indeed financially profitable to merge fiduciary responsibility with in-depth considerations for the people and the planet. It combines contributions from practitioners and researchers in the field of sustainable finance, innovation, entrepreneurship, portfolio engineering, wealth management and transformational leadership. It offers valuable insights into redirecting capital toward integral sustainability across all asset classes while also de-risking assets and offering solutions that ensure the parity of profit, people and planet. The authors not only present new research and frameworks, they also engage in reinventing investment and finance in a practical manner. They show how a new commitment that anchors the UN SDG to the core of every business strategy can make it not only globally competitive but also profitable. The book addresses furthermore the highly important topic of transformational leadership in general with a new entrepreneurial mindset and in the financial industry in particular. The new leader must understand and leverage the antecedents, the cross cutting issues, as well as the behavioural aspects and incentives of sustainable finance. The new leader must understand and have the tools at hand to implement SDG economics. Therefore, this book also addresses concepts that have thus far not been connected to finance nor investment and include frameworks such as vertical development, integral theory, spiral dynamics, conscious capitalism, and their role in de-risking investments, enabling sustainable innovation, reinventing due diligence, but also in horizontal and vertical team development.

This book provides evidence on the relevance of environmental and social factors in decision making. It discusses the Gold Standard Frameworks for integrating extra-financial risks into the philosophy, culture, strategies, products and value chain management procedures of investment and banking and highlights the current emergence of global administrative law. New emerging topics like positive impact investing and finance, climate friendly markets, human rights, the enhanced role of fiduciary duties and shared values are approached with a lot of examples for practical application. Steps towards a new banking culture, a new climate for double loop learning and sustainable financial innovation are outlined and the additional benefits of robust stakeholder engagement explained. The anthology paves the way from robust impact and risk management to positive impact creation and a new investment culture. As well, challenges for the implementation and ways to overcome them are broadly discussed. The book is rooted in the fact that institutions and investors which fail to professionally integrate the management of extra-financial risk into their whole lending and investment chain and fail to move to positive impact creation may well loose positions and mandates and finally the trust of their clients, partners and stakeholders. The contributing authors of this anthology are internationally renowned experts in the field of ESG and impact investing. The compendium brings together practitioners and academics to allow a confluence of thoughts, concepts and viewpoints. This huge variety of perspectives and approaches makes this volume a comprehensive compendium on responsible investment and banking.

Innovations and consequently future-fitness must form new models and address existing hurdles and new forms of collaborations.

This book explores new concepts for future-fitness with five capitals: financial, ecological, social/cultural, human/personal, and manufactured/technological. It offers a new integral framework bringing researchers and business leaders together in one volume.
