Abstract

Social and Sustainable Finance has been a popular topic within multiple books and journals during the last decade (Lauesen, 2013). Although the financial crisis has diminished the investment pace in Social and Sustainable Finance, this crisis has shown what happens when the market is exploited beyond its limits: the global recession, which we have seen during the last nine years. This malicious event—although not outstanding, because financial crisis has historically had a tendency to occur in circles (Galbraith, 1994)—has witnessed that Social and Sustainable Investing equals investing in the future for the welfare and security of future generations.
