Macquarie University joins GRASFI
Macquarie University has joined the Global Research Alliance for Sustainable Finance and Investment (GRASFI) - a new network of global research universities established to promote multi-disciplinary academic research on sustainable finance and investment. GRASFI consists of global research universities, each with expertise in this emerging field.
Macquarie University is GRASFI’s 20th member, and the first member university from Australia.
Professor Martina Linnenluecke, Director of the Centre of Corporate Sustainability and Environmental Finance (CCSEF) has spearheaded Macquarie’s involvement in this increasingly important area of research, and is excited about prospects for future research collaboration. A particular focus will be on the development of graduate students and junior academics working on sustainable finance and investment.
High-quality, rigorous academic research can inform necessary developments in the theory and practice of sustainable finance and investment. Doing so will help align the financial system with global environmental sustainability, a necessary condition for implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The alliance consists of the following universities:
- University of California, Berkeley
- University of Cambridge
- Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE)
- Columbia University
- École Polytechnique - ENSAE
- Frankfurt School of Finance and Management
- University of Hamburg
- Imperial College London
- London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
- Maastricht University
- Macquarie University
- University of Otago
- University of Oxford
- Stanford University
- Stockholm School of Economics
- University of Toronto
- Tsinghua University
- University College London
- Yale University
- University of Zurich
