The Finance and Sustainability conference covers a variety of issues related to recent finance problems among which: corporate finance, public finance, monetary and fiscal policy issues, risk management. In the sustainability field, we wish to cover issues related to sustainable finance, the transition to a green economy, corporate sustainability and sustainable development.

The conference Finance and Sustainability becomes a part of public debate about climate and renewable energy issues in Poland and in the world.
The financial system is already in transition driven by economic and finance strategy oriented towards long-term sustainable and climate-resilient development and also by the digital revolution. According to the above transition, new concepts of finance have emerged in public debate such as green finance, sustainable finance, climate finance, carbon finance. Finance was always an instrument of economic decisions. The aim of finance in the neoclassic market economy was to maximize profits and shareholders value. The new approach to finance is purpose oriented, mission‑oriented, and value‑oriented which is opposite to the traditional role of finance. This approach supports sustainable development, green economy, low carbon economy also adaptation and mitigation of climate change.

The fields of scientific interest of the conference are:

  • Corporate finance,
  • Public finance,
  • Risk management,
  • Corporate sustainability,
  • Transition to green economy,
  • Sustainable development,
  • Capital markets,
