What is JEI?

The JEI is an inter-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, online journal that publishes original research in all areas at the intersection of the environment and investing. The JEI presents research papers, commentaries, case studies, and reviews on manifold topics. It focuses on the critical issues of creating, deploying, financing, structuring, and managing successful market-based solutions to the environmental challenges of today.

Objective of Competition

Through this competition, the JEI hopes to encourage students to express their ideas on topics and themes related to environmental investing. As a contest participant, you are advised to read the JEI in order to familiarize yourself with the content covered and to review the previous covers. Access to the JEI is free; however, registration is required: www.thejei.com.
