Climate change will present institutional investors with some of the most important risks and opportunities they will face for generations to come.

This edited collection brings together leading theoretical and applied research with the intent to design a sustainable global financial future. The contributors argue that our world cannot move toward sustainability, address climate change, reverse environmental degradation, and improve human well-being without aligning the financial system with sustainable development goals like those outlined by the United Nations. Such a system would: a) be environmentally and socially responsible; b) align with planetary boundaries; c) manage natural resources sustainably; d) avoid doing more harm than good; and e) be resilient and adaptable to changing conditions. The overarching theme in this collection of chapters is a response to the worldwide, supranational sustainable finance discussions about how we can transition to a new socio-ecological system where finance, human well-being, and planetary health are recognized as being highly intertwined.
This edited collection, the result of an international seminar held at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law, Oñati, Spain in 2010, explores the potential legal and criminological consequences of climate change, both domestically and for the international community. A novel feature of the book is the consideration given to the potential synergies between the two disciplinary foci, thus to encourage among legal scholars and criminologists not only an analysis of the consequences of climate change from these perspectives but to bring these fields together to provide a unique, inter-disciplinary exploration of the ways in which climate change does, or could, impact on our societies. Such an inter-disciplinary approach is necessary given that climate change is a multifaceted phenomenon and one which is intimately linked across disciplines. To study this topic from the point of view of a single social science discipline restricts our understanding of the societal consequences of climate change. It is hoped that this edited collection will identify emerging areas of concern, illuminate areas for further research and, most of all, encourage future academic discussion on this most critical of issues.
“Ever since coining the term ‘sovereign wealth funds,’ I have watched with mixed feelings the debate unfolding around them. On the one hand, the growth in size and influence of these funds has been nothing short of spectacular, with tremendously beneficial stabilising effects for the global economy and financial markets. On the other hand, heightened public scrutiny and suspicion in many recipient countries, often inspired by nothing more than deep-seated prejudice and economic nationalism, have not been helpful. There have been precious few books written on the subject and none by financial industry practitioners – until now. Castelli and Scacciavillani have taken on the challenge and made an important contribution with this book.”—Andrew Rozanov, Head of Sovereign Advisory, Permal Group & originator of the term ‘Sovereign Wealth Funds’ “A seminal work filled with interesting analyses and pinpoint arguments. I believe this book will exhilarate fund managers and academics who want to get an insight into the Sovereign Wealth Funds dynamics. We are encountering the finest Sovereign Wealth Funds book of the decade.”—Young-Kwon Cho, PhD, Publisher, The Financial News “Sovereign Wealth Funds have evolved into a major influence in global financial markets and their sophistication and professionalism has grown rapidly. This publication sets out very clearly how sovereign wealth funds work and explains their important role not just in traditional fixed income and equity markets but also in alternative asset classes such as infrastructure projects , real estate and private equity.”—Robert Parker, Senior Adviser , Credit Suisse “Castelli and Scacciavillani have razed the conventional and parochial understanding of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) dominant in the twentieth century. In its place, they offer a compelling argument that SWFs are an epiphenomenon of a secular economic re-balancing and a shift toward a multipolar global economy.”—Angelo Calvello, PhD, CEO, Impact Investment Partners and author of Environmental Alpha: Climate Change and Institutional Investors “The Great Financial Crisis has highlighted the growing importance of SWFs as a stabilizing force in capital markets and as international institutional investors. They are moving away from being purely passive portfolio investors to becoming active, direct investors. They are moving away from traditional investments – no longer ‘safe’ and ‘risk free’ – in advanced economies towards emerging markets, supporting the latter’s increasing economic dominance. In the Middle East, which hosts some of the largest SWFs, their investment focus is turning towards domestic economic development objectives. The New Economics of Sovereign Wealth Fundsby Massimiliano Castelli & Fabio Scacciavillani is well-informed, comprehensive, well written by seasoned economists, who provide an excellent overview of the issues and dispel a variety of myths about SWFs. If you are interested in the changing global economic & financial geography and understanding how investment decisions by SWFs will change global capital flows, this book should be your guide.”—Dr Nasser Saidi, Chief Economist – DIFC, Dubai International Financial Centre "This well researched book pours light over usually non-transparent and sometimes mysterious Sovereign Wealth Funds, their investment activities, and their function in an evolving global system."—George Magnus, Senior Economic Adviser, UBS
