In 2009, Greenleaf Publishing launched its ground-breaking Responsible Investment series to provide a forum for outstanding empirical and theoretical work on all aspects of responsible investment. Since then, we have produced three books and one Special Issue of the Journal of Corporate Citizenship:
- Rory Sullivan, Valuing Corporate Responsibility: How Do Investors Really Use Corporate Responsibility Information? (March 2011)
- Céline Louche and Steve Lydenberg Dilemmas in Responsible Investment (June 2011)
- Rory Sullivan and Daphne Biliouri (editors), Responsible Investment in Emerging Markets, Journal of Corporate Citizenship, Issue 48 (Winter 2012).
- Jason West, The Long Hedge: Preserving Organisational Value through Climate Change Adaptation (January 2014)
Greenleaf is currently considering book proposals for publication in 2014 and 2015. We are particularly interested in contributions on the following topics:
- The financial, environmental, social and governance outcomes from responsible investment.
- Responsible investment in different asset classes.
- The implementation of responsible investment by different actors (e.g. pension funds, asset managers, sovereign wealth funds, private equity funds, insurance companies), and in different geographic regions.
- The role that has been played by collaborative initiatives such as the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, UNEPFI and the investor networks on climate change.
- Public policy and responsible investment, including the public policy implications of responsible investment, and the role that responsible investment has played in public policy debates on both specific environmental, social and governance issues, and on wider capital market issues.
- The changing investment landscape and the implications for responsible investment.
