Research Handbook of Finance and Sustainability

Edited by Sabri Boubaker, EM Normandie Business School, France, Douglas Cumming, College of Business, Florida Atlantic University, US and Duc Khuong Nguyen, IPAG Business School, France

The severe consequences of the global financial crisis 2008-2009 and numerous accounting frauds and financial scandals over the last fifteen years have let to calls for more ethical and responsible actions in all economic activities including consumption, investing, governance and regulation. Despite the fact that ethics in business and corporate social responsibility rules have been adopted in various countries, more efforts have to be devoted to motivate and empower more actors to integrate ethical behavior and rules in making business and managerial decisions. The Research Handbook of Finance and Sustainability will provide the readers but particularly investors, managers, and policymakers with comprehensive coverage of the issues at the crossroads of finance, ethics and sustainable development as well as proposed solutions, while focusing on three different levels: corporations, investment funds, and financial markets.

‘The Research Handbook of Finance and Sustainability, edited by Sabri Boubaker, Douglas Cumming and Duc Khuong Nguyen, all prominent members of the field of finance, gathers contributions from many well accomplished authors of finance worldwide. This book provides a superb panorama on the recent developments in the finance literature. In particular, it adventures into and explores topics on corporate social responsibility, the connection between environmental and entrepreneurial finance, how sustainable finance is linked to governance and the relationship between sustainability, fraud and agency problems. This book is a must-read for the finance profession.’
– Balázs Égert, OECD, Paris, France

‘The Handbook is organized into four excellent sections that examine corporate social responsibility, environmental and entrepreneurial finance, governance and sustainable finance, and fraud, governance and agency problems. I would encourage anyone with an interest in these topics to read this book.’
– William L. Megginson, The University of Oklahoma, US

‘We seem to be living in particularly turbulent times. Environmental issues, sustainability, corporate social responsibility and corporate fraud raise major challenges for economic stability at the macro level and for governance and financial investors at the firm level. These challenges are worldwide and relate to the huge variety of firms from the largest corporations to micro-enterprises. Sabri Boubaker, Douglas Cumming, and Duc Khuong Nguyen have put together a timely and highly insightful collection that provides an excellent resource for researchers, policymakers and even the informed general reader on these important topics.’
– Mike Wright, Imperial College London, UK
