The paper is a reflection on what you learnt from this course and how it applies to your life and to your careers.The project is on specific climate/sustainability problem and my group did the concentrated solar power in Botswana. The course is entirely about sustainable finance.So basically the paper will reflect what I have learnt about the sustainability in finance and it’s a deep and broad reflection on whatever from the course has impacted my thinking the most.
***From the syllabus
Sustainable Finance Theory and Practice
The capital markets facilitate the flow of money to investments that optimize financial profitability but often ignore the societal and environmental impacts. Climate change, food and water scarcity, biodiversity, human rights, resource depletion, worker diversity and well-being, corruption, and economic inequality are among the many challenges that make sustainability assessment an imperative for corporations and investors. In this course, we will envision a world in which corporations and investors measure, manage, and account for the impact of their business decisions on different stakeholders, including planet Earth. The course will focus on innovative solutions for a range of sustainability issues outlined in the Paris Accord (December 2015) and in the 17 sustainable development goals adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015.
The aim of the Sustainable Finance Theory and Practice course is to educate students on the importance of incorporating sustainable practices in making business decisions. The course will provide students with a theoretical and practical foundation of core concepts in sustainable finance – which refers to any form of financial service integrating sustainability practices into business or investment decisions for the lasting benefit of all stakeholders.
Specific, course objectives are:
* Understand the financial economics of a sustainable planet in the context
* global climate change; global poverty and inequality; and loss of biodiversity.
* Understand new economic frameworks such as Doughnut Economics and Planetary Boundaries for financing sustainable projects.
* Evaluate the tools, data, and engagement methods available to investors and corporations for financing sustainable projects.
* Identify and analyze the externalities that should be accounted for by investors and corporations.
* Consider innovative solutions to “draw down” carbon from Earth’s
atmosphere and reverse global warming.
• Recognize how sustainability issues impact decisions made by retail investors, philanthropists, institutional investors, corporate lenders and asset managers.
