The Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development mark historical international commitments to a more sustainable economy and society.
In this context, the financial system has a key role to play.
While policy initiatives on sustainable finance are advancing at the European level, there is a strong need for sharing knowledge and experience on substantive sustainable finance issues.
To answer this need, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Community of Practice in Financial Research (CoPFiR) have organised the summer school on sustainable finance.
The organising committee of the conference includes JRC staff and Professor Andreas G. F. Hoepner.
