  • Green finance research around the world: a review of literature   Order a copy of this article
    by Peterson K. Ozili 
    Abstract: This paper reviews the existing research on green finance. It identifies the important themes in the green finance literature, particularly, the strategies to increase green financing; efforts to make green investment profitable; promoting green financing using technology and policy, the role of regulators and financial institutions in the green finance agenda, and the challenges of green financing. Several cross-country observations about the challenges of green finance and solutions to green finance issues are documented. The findings show that green finance has the potential to make a significant difference in the environment, society and for climate change mitigation, but many challenges abound such as the lack of awareness about green finance, inconsistent definitions of green finance, lack of policy coordination for green financing, inconsistent policies, and lack of profitable incentives to investors and financial institutions who are willing to invest in climate change mitigation.

  • Motives and barriers of organic food consumption behaviour: a comparative study between Indonesia and Malaysia   Order a copy of this article
    by Tony Wijaya, Agung Utama, Anita Mustikasari, Zahrotush Sholikhah, Punitha Sinnappan 
    Abstract: This research aims to identify and compare motive factors and barriers to Indonesia and Malaysia's organic food consumption behaviour. The respondents of this survey research were the generation Z consumers in Indonesia and Malaysia. The data were collected using the purposive sampling technique and then analysed using CFA-SEM and ANOVA. Based on data analysis, the factors that become the motive for the consumption of organic food were health, safety, naturalness, environmental balance, and subjective norms factors. In contrast, consumption barriers were sellers' availability, price, authenticity, income, and knowledge. Based on the testing of factors in the two consumer groups, it is known that there are significant differences in the motives factor between Indonesian and Malaysian respondents. Likewise, there is a significant difference in the barriers factor between Indonesian and Malaysian respondents as a whole, except for two factors, namely authenticity and price.
    Keywords: Gen Z; green behaviour; green consumer; green product.
