About the book Sustainable Finance book cover

Sustainable Finance answers the question of how business and investors can incorporate environmental and social factors into financial decision-making.

The book is at an introductory level and walks readers through embedding sustainability in all types of finance.

The book is collaboration between The University of Queensland and the Auckland University of Technology.
