In recent years sustainability has become central to business education and thinking. At the same time, there has been rapid growth in and demand for sustainable finance by governments, corporations, NGOs, investors and individuals. Concerns about corporations’ contribution to environmental and social problems has meant that “finance as usual” is being challenged. It is evident that the traditional view, increasing shareholder wealth as the sole metric upon which to make business decisions (“shareholder primacy”), is no longer appropriate for today.

Sustainable Finance provides a thorough introduction to the field of sustainable finance and how it is implemented today. We show the corporate and the investor viewpoint, as well as detail how government and non-government bodies have contributed to the development of sustainable financial markets. In the final segment, the book takes a “deep dive” into two pressing contemporary issues: climate change and Māori views of sustainable finance.

Throughout the textbook, readers are provided with engaging, interactive exercises and case studies to cement their learning.

CC BY-NC (Attribution NonCommercial)   English (Australia)

Author(s): Theresa Petray and Nick Osbaldiston

Subject(s): Sociology

Institution(s): James Cook University

Publisher: James Cook University

Last updated: 19/02/2024

Designed to be relevant to a range of introductory sociology classes, this eBook weaves together ‘the canon’ of sociology with contemporary content, and material specifically relevant to learners in Australia and New Zealand. This gives students the necessary foundations to understand how sociology has emerged and developed in different contexts over time. The eBook ensures that readers are aware that this canon is the product of a number of factors and does not represent the limits of what sociology was and can be. Through an approach that recognises both the European classics and those not talked about enough, which includes sociology outside of the European and American scenes, the authors highlight classical and contemporary thinkers from a range of backgrounds.

This peer reviewed eBook includes interactive and multimedia resources to engage learners and demonstrate the dynamic, non-linear, and still-active nature of sociological theory. Even those sociological approaches which have long histories are still relevant and constantly adapting. This eBook includes up to date resources, such as statistics and other forms of data, to ensure the eBook is empirically grounded as well as theoretically developed.

Outdoor education is a unique and well-established field of study with significant local and international literature to support it. Over the last 40 years, outdoor education in various articulations, has become a staple of Victorian schooling. Despite the long-standing tradition in Victoria, of offering outdoor education programs and subjects that aligns to the curriculum, there is currently a lack of specific guidance material to help teachers. It serves as a handbook for pre-service teachers and those working in schools alike, to develop contemporary units of work and assessment tasks as part of their schools outdoor education curriculum.
