Climate change raises the urgency of committing to climate transition and the related risks. Climate-related risks and their transmission mechanisms could affect economic entities by generating higher costs of doing business and increasing the market volatility of asset values. Although financial markets can contribute to an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy, transition risk can influence investment decisions and pose significant threats to financial stability. The aim of this Special Issue is to promote research on the transition risk to a low-carbon economy and its consequences for financial markets and market players. In particular, this Special Issue focuses on research related to sustainable finance and financial innovation and how they interact with financial markets, the evaluation of investments and risk management procedures. We invite both theoretical and empirical papers and encourage researchers from multiple disciplines to submit manuscripts. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Climate change and adaptation finance;
- Climate econometrics and financial innovation;
- The effect of CSR on financial risks;
- Environmental and social impact analysis and the evaluation of investments;
- ESG metrics for portfolio allocation;
- EU taxonomy and portfolio allocation;
- Forecasting transition risk;
- Green bonds;
- Greenwashing in capital markets;
- Hedging transition risk;
- Long-term investors and transition risk;
- Management of stranded assets;
- Quantitative measurement of transition risk;
- Sustainable finance solutions for the transition to a low-carbon economy;
- Transition risk and commodity markets;
- Transition risk and financial networks;
- Transition risk and financial regulation;
- Transition risk and fintech;
