Assessing the EU Strategy on Green Finance and ESG factors

Unipi Team Leader: Luca Spataro, Department of Economics and Management  

Key points

  • Cross fertilization activities to promote discussion on the status of Socially Responsible Investments (SRI) strategies and on the need for regulatory harmonization at the EU level, with a special focus on the action plan on sustainable finance adopted by the European Commission in March 2018;
  • Series of seminars, workshop and conference on the SRI funds in EU, in comparison with other international experiences, aimed at fostering the dialogue between different stakeholders: academicians and students, institutional investors, policy makers, civil society;
  • Spread content activities towards different stakeholders of SRI, academic community, civil society through an interactive website, conference proceedings, newsletters, social networking and research papers.

Background and rationale of the proposal: Statistics by Eurosif and Vigeo reports show that the market for SRI is in a consalidation phase and SRI offered is steadily increasing in most European economies. However, there is a lack of specific regulation on SRI across Europe.


  • cross-fertilization, dissemination of information and policy proposals concerning the issue of the development of Socially-Responsible-Investments (SRI) and ESG related practices and regulation at European level;
  • support young researchers and professors aiming at carrying out research on this EU subject.

Activities: research, seminars, workshop, conference

Main outputs: publication of proceedings, lecture notes, scientific papers, webpage, newsletters, contacts for research networks

Outcomes: develop specific knowledge among the target groups on SRI strategies and regulatory issues at EU level.

Impact: on the members and students of the institution hosting the Jean Monnet Action, on other organisations and individuals involved at national, transnational and European levels, like institutional investors, policymakers, general public and civil society representatives.
