Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

How to maintain sustainable development is a matter of significant importance facing all countries around the world. It calls for a deep transformation in all aspects of society, including the economy, culture, ecology, energy and so on. Accordingly, it is very important to clarify the relationship between various determinants, such as economic growth, population factors, energy transition and the structure transition, and environmental indicators.

Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on the approach to sustainable development from various perspectives. We encourage researchers to submit their experimental, computational, theoretical and empirical research relating to environmental economics, ecological transformations, energy transition, and sustainable development, in addition to climate change and climate risk.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Sustainable development in ecological transition;
  2. Environmental problems in social development;
  3. Corporate environmental performance in social transformation;
  4. Energy transition and energy efficiency issues in structural transformation;
  5. Climate change, climate risk and their impacts on the economy.
