One year ago, EDHEC-Risk Institute became EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute (EDHEC-Risk Climate) reflecting the commitment of EDHEC Business School to advancing the integration of sustainability imperatives across economic activities. The Institute's mission is to help private and public decision-makers manage climate-related financial risks and make the best use of the financial tools available to transition to low-emission and climate-resilient economies.
We are delighted to present our October newsletter, providing a wealth of valuable content, including articles, research findings, and project updates on the most current issues in sustainable finance. This edition offers the latest insights and research from the Institute.

The newsletter also features an interview "Sustainability Reporting and Material Delusions" with Frédéric Ducoulombier, Director of EDHEC-Risk Climate, who answers key questions about recent developments in ESG reporting and the concept of “double materiality.” In particular, he sheds light on the European Sustainability Reporting Standards ESRS, adopted by the Commission in July 2023.
