Access to finance for start-ups and SMEs, particularly those who are involved in the cleantech and health tech sectors is increasing. This is due to the emphasis on environmental protection within UN Sustainability Development Goals and the drive to improve public health in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Clean and health tech enterprises allocate financial resources to projects that mitigate climate and health change. This is the very embodiment of sustainability.
Established within Middlesex University (MU) Business School, GreenFin brings together a powerful coalition of leading researchers from business, management and finance disciplines. Our network is broadened by inter-disciplinary ties to entrepreneurial finance and sustainability across the MU faculties.
Our work includes major contributions to the ESRC-funded Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP). We've made multiple government evaluations for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Innovate UK and British Business Bank. We have also delivered high-level grant reports, written high impact journal articles and steered the publication of major journal special issues.
Our goal is to combine high-quality research and develop cutting edge insights to enhance understanding of green and sustainable financing processes and their impacts.
