2023 GRASFI Annual Conference

The Yale Initiative on Sustainable Finance (YISF) is delighted to host the 6th Annual Conference of the Global Research Alliance for Sustainable Finance and Investment (GRASFI) from August 23 to August 25, 2023.

GRASFI was founded in 2017 to promote multi-disciplinary academic research on sustainable finance and investment. It consists of global research universities, each with expertise in this emerging field. GRASFI aims to: organise the major annual academic conference on sustainable finance and investment internationally; develop academic collaboration between researchers working on sustainable finance and investment; and nurture the growth and development of graduate students and junior academics working on sustainable finance and investment.

There is significant and growing interest among practitioners, policymakers, and civil society in the topic of sustainable finance and investment. There is a now an opportunity to ratchet up the quality and quantity of academic research in this area. High-quality, rigorous academic research can inform necessary developments in the theory and practice of sustainable finance and investment. Doing so will help align the financial system with global environmental sustainability, a necessary condition for implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. YISF is a founding member of GRASFI.

The call for papers is available here and will be open until March 4, 2023 (deadline extended to March 25, 2023).

Registrations will be opened mid-May.

This page will be regularly updated.
