Grégoire Lunven is a PhD candidate at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Prior to starting his thesis, Lunven worked as a law teaching assistant at the University of Versailles. He also interned at the Malagasy Ministry of Environment and in a French law firm specializing in renewable energy. He graduated from la Sorbonne in environmental law and from Sciences Po Paris in public affairs.
Mr. Lunven is interested in the relation between financial regulation and environmental law. With his thesis, he aims at answering the main legal questions arising from attributing climate goals to financial instruments. Key to this inquiry are “sustainable finance taxonomies”. In the context of sustainable finance, taxonomies are regulatory tools that classify economic activities according to their environmental impacts. Mr. Lunven studies how these taxonomies translate climate law into financial regulation.
