“Sustainable Finance: The Role of Green and Transition Finance”

The 5th Rajagiri Conference on Economics and Finance (RCEF’24) under the theme “Sustainable Finance: The Role of Green and Transition Finance,” organized by Rajagiri College of Social Sciences (RCSS) and Rajagiri Business School (RBS) invites submissions on a broad range of topics in economics and finance.

Sustainable finance involves considering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors when making investment choices within the financial sector. This approach encourages long-term investments in economically sustainable activities and projects. It encompasses two main components: Green Finance, which focuses on financing environmentally-friendly initiatives, and Transition Finance, which supports investments that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts while transitioning to a climate-neutral and sustainable economy. The role of sustainable finance is crucial in achieving climate and sustainability goals set by nations. It accomplishes this by directing private investments towards a climate-neutral, climate-resilient, resource-efficient, and equitable economy, working alongside public funding.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together both national and international scholars working in the field of economics and finance in the broadest sense of words, with a special focus on Sustainable Finance. The conference is structured around several thematically-focused sessions. Extended abstracts followed by full research articles in economics and finance are invited from academicians, researchers, doctoral students, and practitioners. Presented full-length papers will be evaluated for publishing in reputed journals.
