On the basis of the TCFD recommendations, this article develop an original composite index: the Climate Risks and Opportunities Reporting Index (CRORI).
Congestion and local air pollution continue to be a serious problem in many cities around the world, partly because of an increasing and ageing...
We assume that a project requires an initial outlay and may either succeed or fail. The probability of success depends on its type and...
We propose an exploratory and theoretical study which introduces how and why a particular and innovative ecological accounting approach, the CARE model, currently called upon by a growing number of practitioners and researchers, is a relevant framework to re-conceptualise the issue of climate finance
