OUR APPROACH TO THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
the Climate Change lab is a joint initiative of the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management and the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. The lab promotes research on the impact of climate change on corporations and markets.
Who we are
We are a team of researchers who have worked in corporate finance, asset pricing, and corporate disclosures, sharing a joint passion for using our experience to learn more about important problems in business and society. We also believe that science benefits from sharing data with other researchers and we founded the Climate Change lab as a vehicle for improving public access to our work.
We study corporations and (capital) markets and use the tools developed by researchers in these domains to understand how climate change affects the corporate world and how firms and markets impact on climate change. Corporate innovations offer opportunities for solutions to the climate emergency, but corporate misbehavior can also worsen the outlook. These tensions are at the center of our work.
