Sustainable Finance

Provided by: NHH
Master's degree (EQF level: 7)

This course provides insight in the links between sustainability challenges and finance. The main task of the financial system is to allocate funding to its most productive use. Traditional finance focuses on financial return and regards the financial sector as separate from the society of which it is part and the environment in which it is embedded. By contrast, sustainable finance considers financial, social, and environmental externalities and returns in combination and shows how finance can accelerate the transition to a sustainable, inclusive economy. The objective is to embrace sustainability without losing a sound and sensible financial perspective. Visit our website for more information (see course details).
