The research project Corporate Sustainable Finance aims to explore the intersection between corporate finance and sustainable business practices. Given the growing global challenges related to environmental and social issues, it is crucial for companies to integrate sustainable practices into their business models. This requires not only a rethinking of environmental and social responsibility, but also innovative financing mechanisms to support these goals.

The research will address various aspects of this issue, including the assessment of sustainability risks and opportunities for companies, the development of instruments for financing sustainable projects, and the analysis of the impact of sustainable financial strategies on long-term company performance. It will focus on different industries and company sizes to develop a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities in this area.

The research aims to provide practical insights for companies, investors and regulators to facilitate the transition to a sustainable economy. Ultimately, the research will contribute to the design of financing solutions that promote both economic success and positive environmental and social impacts.
