About This Course
 
ESG and climate are hot topics in risk management. Increasingly sustainability risk data is integrated in financial analysis, product development, and strategic decision making. But how can risk professionals best use this type of data? And how can they keep track of the increasing number of sustainability risk data- and ratings providers?

Currently there are about 600 main ESG standards, data providers and rating providers around the world. And since risk management hinges to a large extent on data, the importance to risk professionals of being able to use sustainability data and frameworks is increasing. This training will provide you with the ability to use sustainability data and frameworks, to understand what is available, how it can help to identify, understand, avoid, transfer, mitigate or accept climate risks. 


Who Should Attend
  • Any finance professional interested in the impact the zero-carbon transition will have for the financial assets and the financial services sector.
