The Platform for Sustainable Value Creation is an initiative of RSM. The Platform provides a broad network of several leading academic experts working together with some large financial institutions and NGO’s within the financial sector. The aim is to foster thought-leadership, meaningful debate and to accelerate research on sustainable finance.
