Editorial Reviews

"Believably the first collection after the Paris climate summit, this handbook fills a gap of reference materials by combining sustainability and finance issues. It examines some of the most pressing challenges in green investment in the Kyoto era, while provides interesting insights into possibly new paradigms for post-Kyoto days. I highly recommend this resource guide to intellectuals who work to make sustainable finance truly sustainable."  --Alastair Marke, Shantalla Inc. "This is a timely publication that addresses climate change, water rights and innovative ways to manage and sustain our environment. These issues are covered from a financial and economic perspective, addressing regulation, culture and geography ranging from crowd funding to the role that women play in protecting our global resources."  --Christine Helliar, UniSA Business School "The breadth of coverage in the handbook underscores the multi-faceted - and heartening - development of this field, in both research and application. From Venice to the Australian Outback, this book locates examples of broader and balanced financial approaches to the valuation and preservation of scarce resources. An essential resource for the field." --Marie Wilson, University of South Australia Business School
