Abstract

Sustainability is now an essential objective for all organizations, enabling them to resist adverse shocks and thrive in a disruptive world. This Research Handbook provides expert coverage and practical tips on a wide array of pertinent issues related to current finance and sustainability research.

Comprising 31 chapters written by over 60 eminent experts, this Research Handbook provides readers with the latest ideas and propositions regarding finance and sustainability. This includes the significance of corporate social responsibility, environmental and entrepreneurial finance, crowdsourcing, governance and fraud. Despite ethical business practices and corporate social responsibility rules being adopted in various countries, the contributors demonstrate that further efforts are needed to motivate and empower actors to integrate ethical behavior into all business and managerial decisions.

Multidisciplinary in reach, this comprehensive Research Handbook features forward-thinking academic and professional literature on corporate social responsibility, sustainability and finance for post-graduate students, researchers and practitioners to explore the forthcoming paths for research.
