Research Group on Sustainable Finance (RGSF)
The Research Group on Sustainable Finance at University of Hamburg is comprised of 5 professors in the area of Finance, Accounting and Strategy. Our aim is to highlight the role of financial markets and investments for sustainability in business practice. We strongly believe that financial markets bear a huge leverage for facilitating and fostering social chance/opportunity and ecological improvement. Our research investigates a variety of aspects and mechanisms, with emphasis on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria, corporate strategies, stakeholder expectations and corresponding implications for corporate financial performance and risk.
