Climate Change is becoming more and more a mainstream business issue, with investors increasingly paying close attention to it in their investment decisions and channeling funds into renewables and away from hydrocarbons.


Nidhi Baiswar
Head of Sustainable Design and Construction, Bouygues UK
Our planet is going through massive transformation while confronting and tackling climate change and global warming issues. We have to actively find solutions together so that we leave the environment in a better state than we found it.


TSE has a long research tradition on topics related to climate change and sustainability. For many years, our energy and environmental economics research group has been working on the economics of natural resources (notably water resource management, growth and climate change, and energy transition); the evaluation of public policies (including the issue of risk and uncertainty in cost-benefit analysis); the political economy of the environment; economics and biology (notably human-environment interactions), and behavioral environmental economics.
