EFD - The sustainable Finance research Forum Paris 2023

After the great success of its first edition, we are ready to organize the second edition of the "Sustainable Finance research Forum Paris 2023".
Sustainable finance has tremendously transformed ways financial issues are addressed and treated in practice by financial professionals. The conference "Sustainable Finance research Forum Paris 2023" "Entretiens de la Finance Durable", co-organised by the French Finance Association, ESKA Publishing, the Journal "Bankers Markets Investors" and KEDGE Business School seeks papers of applied research covering both questions and possible answers to all relevant issues from a corporate, intermediary and investor point of view. Research must be presented in a scientific rigorous manner and in a way professional experts may read the message.

We welcome notably short papers less than 12 pages with illustrative material that could build on a more theoretical paper. The scientific committee will thus select papers relevant to sustainable finance with the two following criteria, first scientific soundness and innovation, second understandability to professional experts and practical implications. In addition to the classic academic presentations the “Entretiens de la Finance Durable” will be a conference where professionals and academics shall express their views during panels dedicated to corporates, intermediaries and investors. Topics may include notably:

Corporate responsibility  Climate finance
Corporate governance Greenwashing
Corporate culture and values Ratings
Social matters and education in firms Taxonomy
Green banking Responsible investments
Green and Social Bonds Long term performance and risks
Impact banking and financial products         Financial education and literacy
Ecological Macro-Finance Impact finance 
Secondary markets Indices and derivatives


Two possibilities are offered: classic presentation or Posters session during breaks and mid-day pause. The posters should be 1meter high and 60cm large with on the top 20cm title and authors.
