Stefan Zeisberger receives the competitive Netspar Theme Grant for the project “Understanding, measuring, and applying sustainability preferences”.
Professor Stefan Zeisberger received the competitive Netspar Theme Grant together with Jorgo Goossens from Radboud University. The grant is entitled “Understanding, measuring, and applying sustainability preferences”, and it enables the researchers to conduct crucial ESG research over the coming three years. The grant is in collaboration with researchers Julian Kölbel from the University of St. Gallen and Katja Haneweld from the University of New South Wales (Australia).
In particular, European legislation on pensions prescribes that investors' ESG preferences must be considered in investment decisions. However, despite the importance of this field, it is not well understood what the drivers are of ESG preferences, how they could be measured (in combination with risk and time preferences), and what this implies for investment decisions. This research aims to fill these gaps.
