Special Issue Information Dear Colleagues, Over the last few decades, the concept of social and environmental sustainability has become increasingly relevant. Sustainability aims to describe and understand political and economic decisions in terms of their environmental, social, and governance impact. The embedded risks are among the most complex perspective threats worldwide. In this contest, the financial sector has been recognized as having a crucial role in fostering sustainable development, by re-orienting resources towards more sustainable targets and businesses. The rapid growth of structures and vehicles to support social and environmental sustainability has stimulated financial and economic studies. However, many areas of sustainability-related issues deserve further investigation. This Special Issue aims at bridging this gap by collecting cutting-edge original papers that will improve the actual understanding of the sustainability universe in all of its sub-areas (sustainable investing, impact investing, green finance, ethical investing, positive finance, social return and sustainability measurement, ESG criteria, circular economy, etc.). We encourage submissions from scholars, practitioners, and policymakers addressing sustainable and measurable solutions to meet social and environmental (i.e., societal) needs of society at large. This Special Issue also welcomes contributions from a broad range of fields related to economics and finance at large, including the address of regulatory and institutional issues connected to the topic. Both theoretical and empirical papers are welcome. The selected papers will contribute to describing the state-of-the-art in this field, as well as provide new directions for research on the topic of social and environmental sustainability.
