Abstract:The importance of sustainable finance is gradually increasing along with environmental and social issues. This study adopts a systematic literature review on the application of sustainable finance by financial institutions and the effect this has on these institutions. A systematic analysis of research papers was obtained through the formulation of a comprehensive search query. Furthermore, a visual representation is provided of the analysis conducted in this study, presenting two tables that comprehensively depict the list of studies included in the analysis. Enabling readers to access detailed information regarding the studies examined in the research. Moreover, the findings indicate that although a standardized framework for understanding sustainable finance is absent, there is a common thread emphasizing the incorporation of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles into financial and investment decision-making processes. Sustainable finance is increasingly recognized as a vital tool for achieving long-term economic growth while safeguarding the environment and promoting social well-being. The main themes depicted in this research are stakeholder theory and ethical investments, with ongoing debates focusing on the regulation of sustainable finance practices in financial institutions. Future studies could build on the thorough understanding produced by this literature review and dive further into certain aspects of sustainable finance's impact on financial institution’s decision-making.
