Climate-related Financial Risk Course
March/April 2021 (dates tbc) and 14-17 July 2021
Measuring and managing climate-related financial risks will be critical for institutions across the financial system. This has been made clear by the G20 Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as by central banks and financial regulators around the world. Physical climate change impacts and societal responses to climate change are already stranding assets across sectors of the global economy and this looks set to accelerate. This has very real implications that need to be appropriately and professionally managed.
Sustainable Finance Foundation Course
March/April 2021 (dates tbc) and 13-17 September 2021
Aligning finance with sustainability is a necessary condition for tackling the environmental challenges facing humanity. It is also necessary for financial institutions (and policymakers and regulators) to manage environment-related risks, as well as capture opportunities associated with the transition to global environmental sustainability. The Sustainable Finance Foundation Course was launched in 2016 and is the premier short-course on sustainable finance globally.
