Séminaire organisé par la chaire Éthique et Finance de Christian Walter et Émmanuel Picavet, avec Boudewijn de Bruin (Université de Groningue) qui donnera une conférence intitulée : « Ethical Investing and Sustainable Finance. Arguments, Norms, and Regulation »

Résumé de l’intervention :

In this talk, I consider key arguments that have been given in favour of ethical investing/sustainable finance, and evaluate their plausibility. I examine arguments based on religion (going back as far as to Methodist views from the 1750s) as well as on public goods, and point to a number defects from which these arguments suffer. I propose a philosophically more rigorous approach to ethical investing, focusing among other things on the underlying normative framework as well as a number of measurement issues that have to be addressed first. I conclude by linking these ideas to regulation, the Sustainable Finance Action Plan of the European Commission in particular.
