Since the 1990s, international investment law has been rapidly evolving, resulting in a complex web of over 3,000 investment treaties. These treaties have been used to challenge a wide range of host state actions and inactions that have allegedly negatively affected foreign investors or investments. Those challenges, in turn, expose host states to potentially significant… read more
In collaboration with a think tank in Cambridge, UK, this research project examines how the shift to electric vehicles (EVs) could be accelerated, and how this transformation may impact fuel demand. We focus on two areas where we have identified gaps in the existing literature. The first focus is on the impact of fleet purchasers… read more
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the world’s comprehensive post-2015 agenda for equitable, socially inclusive, and environmentally sustainable economic development. Meeting the SDGs by 2030 will require unprecedented cooperation and collaboration among governments, non-governmental organizations, development partners, the private sector and communities.

As part of a 3-year grant from Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), CCSI is working with the Columbia Water Center to develop and benchmark a modeling platform for quantitatively assessing the environmental risks associated with gold and copper mining projects and their resulting financial implications.
CCSI has been exploring what strategies fossil fuel companies have embraced in order to address climate change concerns and what responsible investors could request from fossil fuel companies in order to move towards a decarbonized economy.
CCSI is working to develop a regulatory and operational framework that would unlock the value of the APG that is currently wasted, in order to improve energy efficiency, expand access to energy, and contribute to climate change mitigation, thus promoting sustainable development.
Mine sites that are remote often rely on off-grid ways to generate power, which cost a lot more. Renewable energy could be a cost-reducing solution and CCSI is researching how to leverage demand from mines to deploy renewables in developing countries.
CCSI is researching how the development of green technology could impact the demand for “critical” minerals.
CCSI is exploring how equity can be taken into account when thinking through the issue of stranding assets.
