Lund University Finance Society
Founded in 1991, Lund University Finance Society, LINC, quickly became the primary organisation for students interested in finance at Lund University.
Through career guidance, practical training, events and field trips, LINC aims to support ambitious students in reaching positions at top firms within the financial industry. Today, LINC is with its 2 400 members the leading finance society in Sweden and one of the most prominent organisations of its kind in Northern Europe. Below you can read more about how LINC view sustainability in general and sustainable finance in specific and what they hope Lund Institute for Sustainability Research can help out with when it comes to integrate these perspectives in education.
LINC regularly invites finance professionals with a sustainability approach to investing as guest speakers, and we strive to deepen our collaboration with industry professionals and researchers active in this field.
”For LINC it is essential to understand how the finance industry is approaching and contributing to economic, environmental and social sustainability. In a world where corporations and financial institutes are increasingly working towards sustainable value creation, we aim to follow by developing our knowledge of the industry's current approach, areas of improvement, and future opportunities.
Members of LINC work together with Associate Professor Susanne Arvidsson here at LUSEM and the newspapers Dagens Industri, and Aktuell Hållbarhet to conduct the annual Swedish Corporate Sustainability Ranking which includes Sweden's largest publicly listed companies. The ranking is based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aims to highlight sustainability areas in need of improvement in Swedish business society.
Furthermore, LINC regularly invites finance professionals with a sustainability approach to investing as guest speakers, and we strive to deepen our collaboration with industry professionals and researchers active in this field. Connection with external expertise is valuable for LINC to integrate sustainable perspectives into the organisation. We believe that Lund Institute for Sustainability Research will further develop sustainable finance research at LUSEM and be a platform for knowledge sharing.
LINC is very much looking forward to future collaboration with Lund Institute for Sustainability Research!”
