He holds the KEDGE-CANDRIAM research chair "Finance Reconsidered: Addressing Sustainable Economic Development" and is co-holder of the KEDGE-LCL chair in Impact Finance. He founded in 2016 and managed for 6 years the first European master’s degree (MSc Sustainable Finance) fully dedicated to the integration of sustainable issues and criteria into financial decisions. He is a graduate of the University of Montpellier (PhD in Management Sciences). His courses cover responsible, sustainable, and green finance, impact investing, and a critical approach to modern financial theory, from a transdisciplinary perspective. He also offers numerous in-house training courses for asset managers and investment funds on how to implement sustainable strategies in financial practices. His research focuses on the integration of sustainability models into companies and the financial system. The main objective of his research is to make proposals for new financial instruments serving the goal of embedding finance in the economy and thus in society and the biosphere (ESG data and information, sovereign green bonds, ecologically risk-free assets, ESG modeling and climate risk in asset prices, regulation of financial institutions, sustainability drivers for companies to achieve the SDGs...). He is an active member of several research networks (Post-Crisis Finance Network PoCFin, SDSN, RIODD, AFEP...) and was a board member of the French Sustainable Investment Forum (FIR) from 2017 to 2022. He is also very active in the media, where he publishes numerous contributions (Marianne, Le Monde, Alternatives Economiques, L'Infodurable, Novethic, Management, Le Figaro, La Tribune, Libération, The Huffington Post, The Conversation, The Financial Times, Xerfi Canal, RTL, Europe 1...). Christophe REVELLI was awarded the RIODD-VIGEO Research Prize in 2012 for his doctoral thesis entitled "Performance financière de l'investissement socialement responsable (ISR) : Approche méta-analytique" and the 2015 SAB Trophy for the best article in Sustainable Finance for his paper "Should Islamic Investors Consider SRI Criteria in their Investment Strategies?". His article "Financial performance of SRI: What have we learned? A meta-analysis" was awarded by Business Ethics: A European Review as the 2nd best article published by the journal during the period 2015-2020. He also received the 2018 FIR-PRI award for best European pedagogical innovation in sustainable finance (for the MSc Sustainable Finance). Two of his students, Mélanie Comble and Anatole Douaud, received the 2019 and 2021 FIR-PRI awards respectively for the best master's thesis in sustainable finance.
