This research theme deals with the interconnectivity between global financial processes and large-scale biophysical processes. The work underway explores how financial actors, instruments and flows affect social-ecological processes. Examples include studies on the role of financial instruments for commodities and
their possible associations to land use change; and the impact of novel financial instruments for biosphere stewardship.

Current projects:

  • Earth System Finance
  • Tax havens, international financial flows and global sustainability
  • Human-biosphere interactions and financial crises
