About Sustainability & Environmental Economics

Sustainability & Environmental Economics

This research theme defines sustainability broadly and in line with the SDGs, with an emphasis on environmental perspectives. Our researchers study a broad range of topics such as behavioural change and sustainable finance, markets, and risk. They examine environmental and sustainability policies and political economy impacts of climate policies.
