The 4th Annual GRASFI Conference in 2021 is being organised by the International Institute of Green Finance (IIGF) of the Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE) from September 1-3, 2021 as a virtual event. This will be the first GRASFI conference in an emerging economy and the first in Asia, one of the most dynamic regions for sustainable finance and investment.
The Paris Climate Change Agreement, the 2030 Agenda and the Aichi targets/the post-2020 biodiversity framework aim to set policymakers, the private sector, and civil society on a common path to advance global environmental sustainability and human wellbeing.
In this context, academic research into sustainable finance and investment plays a crucial role to provide evidence-based theory and practice to guide global cooperation efforts in an effective direction. This research must come from a diverse range of approaches and fields in order to constructively address what are extremely complicated and multi-disciplinary problems in the sustainability and finance fields.
