🚨Thread alert🚨
I spent most of last year studying #sustainablefinance. The results are now out in a report for @Academie_be & SFPI-FPIM. Here's the gist (🧵, 1/n):

academieroyale.be/Academie/docum…
1) the philosopher's stone of sustainable finance is figuring out how to distinguish sustainable from non-sustainable investments. (2/n)
If you get that distinction right, you can do anything: labels/standards, penalising/supporting factors, subsidies/taxes, mandatory portfolio allocations, even direct public investment, etc. You'd have a guidance system, a GPS, to steer all the other tools. (3/n)

Most Cdn business media coverage around Biden has focused on Keystone. But that misses major shifts taking place in US/globally on climate risk disclosure, which will have far bigger impacts on Cdn economy/regulatory regime than the fate of a single project (thread)
Canada has been slow walking the last few years when it comes to requirements on climate risk/corporate disclosure. Organizations continue to underestimate how quickly the landscape can shift. Consider what’s happened since Monday, following election being called for Biden.
NYT reports Biden administration preparing Day 1 executive order mandating public companies to disclose on climate risk nytimes.com/2020/11/08/cli…

1/ With financial innovations such as #sustainablefinance and #impactinvesting increasingly viewed as key to the solution of current social and environmental crises, let’s take a look at how we got here, what might be problematic about that and what to do about it. 👇
2/ This is a thread about the empirical part of my book that traces the history of #socinv in the UK. I’ll leave the theoretical argument based on Fligstein & McAdam’s strategic action field theory & pragmatist action theory for another time.

3/ Financial innovations such as #impinv or #socinv mean that firms succeed to make money from financial intermediation where they haven’t done before. To do so, these firms have to make others participate: investees wanting finance, gov to regulate (and often subsidize), etc.
