There is overwhelming evidence that the allocation and stewardship of financial capital can drive positive changes in the behaviour of economic agents (businesses, individuals, and governments) related to their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) engagements. With the vision of contributing towards the UN's global sustainable development goals, Strathclyde Centre for Sustainable Finance and Accounting (SCSFA) is dedicated to undertaking original and systematic scientific academic studies in uncovering the interlinks between economic agents' ESG engagements and their operational / market-based Accounting and Finance (A&F) activities. 

Our team of researchers and post-graduate students investigate ESG-related issues in the field of A&F. The topics and research outputs include a diversity of themes, such as Corporate Social Responsibilities, Greenwashing, Extreme Climatic Conditions, Impact Measurement, Financial history and investor Protection, Gender Diversity, Social Mobility, Executive compensation, Layoffs, Ethical Culture and Speaking Up, and much more. SCSFA also orgainses regular events inviting external academics and proctitioners to debate ideas and pressing issues related to ESG engagement, measurement and impacts. Our team of researchers also actively writes blogs and disseminates their findings in media news.
