The current emphasis on sustainable development is a consequence of the general awareness of the need to solve numerous environmental problems resulting from our modern society.It has resulted in the need to assess the impact of economic investments on the environment.

This conference will address the topic of Investment Assessment and Environmental Economics in an integrated way; in accordance with the principles of sustainability; considering social and environmental impacts of new investments.

The meeting aims to help develop a methodology to address these important problems. It will also consider fundamental issues of sustainability. The roots of financial development are financial growth which in conventional terms requires an increase in production and the use of more resources. Overuse of those resources can result in the destruction of the natural resources and a larger release of waste and pollution into the environment.

The usual assumption is that it is difficult to achieve the growth of enterprise in an environmentally friendly manner. This paradigm usually associated with developed countries, is now affecting all other regions of the globe. The main question is if the development of enterprise is compatible with environmental protection.

The conference will address this problem of primary importance to Society, discussing and proposing a more constructive and progressive approach to ensure sustainability.

The meeting will provide a common forum for a wide range of scientists and practitioners specialising in a range of subjects related to the conference theme.
