In brief

About Finance for Environmental and Social Systemic Change

Co-directors  Dr Ellen Quigley and Dr Belinda Bell 


Against a backdrop of ever-accelerating climate change and worsening inequality, Finance for Environmental and Social Systemic Change aims to enact rapid and meaningful change within the existing financial system while also contributing to the emergence of a new paradigm. Our mission is:

To undertake and deploy academic research to mitigate systemic risks by working to change the practices of asset owners and other systemic actors by seeding the elements of a future equitable financial system.

Our work is based on an evolving body of academic evidence and entails a fundamental reimagining of the relationships among financial sector actors and the real economy, society, and the natural world.
