CEFGroup Reading Session

Welcome to the Climate and Energy Finance Reading Group, a monthly meeting where academic staff and postgraduate students in the Accountancy and Finance department together discuss and present research articles in the areas of climate finance, sustainable investing, energy markets, and carbon markets.

With the ever-increasing importance of addressing climate change, this reading group provides a platform for participants to deepen their knowledge and engage in critical discussions about the latest research and developments in these fields.

We invite you to join us in exploring these fascinating and timely issues and look forward to stimulating conversations and insightful contributions from all participants.
