YISF to Host International GRASFI Conference in 2023

The 6th Annual Conference of the Global Research Alliance for Sustainable Finance and Investment (GRASFI) will be hosted by Yale University on August 23-25, 2023. The Yale Initiative on Sustainable Finance is organizing this conference. The Academic Committee is chaired by YISF's Faculty Co-Director Todd Cort, and YISF's Research Director Nathan de Arriba-Sellier will chair the Conference Committee.

In view of the Conference, GRASFI and YISF have published the Call for Papers. The call for papers is now closed and the peer-review committee concluded the selection of the papers.


The conference is open to methodologically rigorous and robust submissions in all areas of sustainable finance and investment. Disciplinary diversity is appreciated, as are all types of methodologies, quantitative as well as qualitative and theoretical work. Conceptual and empirical papers are both welcome.

Potential areas of focus include: public and private equity, central banking, asset classes and sustainable finance, private wealth, public and private debt, impact investing, economic modeling, accounting, etc.

We encourage the submission of PhD papers and the conference will award a Best PhD Paper Prize.

Each chosen paper will be given a 30-minute presentation slot (20 to present and 10 for questions). Papers from different disciplines and with different methodological approaches are sought to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and learning. Strong emphasis will be given to quality over quantity of chosen submissions, to ensure a strong experience for conference participants.

The best papers presented will be awarded monetary prizes at the discretion of the Academic Committee.
