As the world shifts its focus from climate change to sustainability, companies and investors are increasingly seeking ways to incorporate sustainability into their business and investment processes. In parallel, advances in AI and technology are revolutionizing the finance sector and allowing for more data-based decision making. The intersection of these two fields presents a unique opportunity to drive progress towards a greener future, while simultaneously enhancing financial performance. In fact, AI can improve the effectiveness of sustainability practices by enabling the analysis of vast and intricate datasets, uncovering previously unknown patterns, and delivering more timely and accurate predictions. The critical role artificial intelligence (AI) plays in sustainability and finance will be discussed in this book, which will also look at how machine learning and financial technologies are influencing how finance professionals see environmental, social, and governance (ESG) challenges. With an emphasis on the real-world applications of these intersections, the book hopes to offer insightful information to academics, practitioners, policymakers, and students alike.


The way "AI, Finance, and Sustainability" approaches the topic is what sets it apart. This book offers a thorough and integrated view on how AI and sustainable finance are becoming more and more entwined, in contrast to previous books that usually concentrate on these topics separately. The book looks at the moral and societal ramifications of artificial intelligence in finance and how it can open up new doors for sustainability. The book's instructional elements, which include case studies and expert analysis, allow readers a thorough comprehension of the subject and practical application opportunities. The book is a useful tool for professionals who want to have a good influence in their industry since it offers practical advice on how AI may be used to promote sustainability in finance, which can be advantageous to financial institutions and other organizations. Furthermore, readers will be able to remain ahead of the curve and make well-informed judgments about how to incorporate these concepts into their operations thanks to the book's thorough treatment of the most recent advancements in the fields of sustainability and artificial intelligence. Researchers and academics will also gain from the book's succinct and straightforward structure, which makes it easy to understand and keeps readers up to speed with industry advancements.
