Abstract

The research on sustainable finance has intensified in the past decade. In this survey, we synthesize recent academic results and models on socially responsible investing (SRI) in equity markets. We split our review into six thematic parts: data issues, investor preferences, link with financial performance, portfolio integration, climate change risk, and theoretical models.

Keywords: ESG investing, sustainable finance, climate change risk, corporate social responsibility
