Ben Caldecott

Director, Oxford Sustainable Finance Programme

Smith School for Enterprise and the Environment

Ben’s research is focussed on the intersection between environmental sustainability and applied economics and finance. Particularly in how financial institutions are affected by environmental factors, what they can do to manage these factors, and the implications of managing or failing to manage them. Ben is also interested in how environmental policy and regulation interacts with finance and vice versa.

Ben has ongoing research exposure to other sustainability topics, including: international and domestic climate change policy; low carbon economic development; renewable energy investment; energy efficiency policy; biodiversity and protected area conservation; prudential regulation and systemic risk; carbon markets; and ‘green’ financial centres.
