Thesis Title: Carbon Emission, Finance markets and renewable energy

The main purpose of the research is to investigate the impact of climate change on the financial performance of the firms. The connection between climate change and financial performance is detected due to the environmental regulation, temperature changes and the introduction of carbon as a commodity. The effect of the aforementioned points can be measured as the environmental performance of the firm. Therefore, the project aims to examine if climate changes or environmental regulations can have an effect on the financial markets. Also, whether regulations can trigger companies to appraise energy investment decisions or not.
