Make an Impact on your Organisation with Sustainable Finance

Sustainable finance integrates Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria into business and investment decisions for sustainable outcomes for society at large, such as mitigating and adapting to the adverse effects of climate change, building inclusive communities, and supporting the adoption of international human rights and labour best practices. With Singapore looking to position itself as the green finance hub in the region, sustainable finance has been growing in prominence within the business community.

Designed to impart ready-to-apply knowledge and expertise to support and accelerate the growth of Singapore’s sustainable finance ecosystem by looking both from the issuer and investor perspectives.

The 5-day certificate course designed and delivered in partnership with UN Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS), a leading voice in the area of corporate sustainability, will assist business leaders and managers in understanding how sustainable finance and responsible investment strategies can help accelerate action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and further impact their business and industry.
