kristy Green Prosperity, SRI/ESG News

Dear Madam,
Dear Sir,

Greetings from UNEP FI Geneva!

The next UNEP FI online course on ‘Climate Change: Risks and Opportunities for the Finance Sector’ will be run from the 4th to 25th April and we would be very pleased if you could join us.

The objective of this course is to equip representatives of financial institutions – including banks, insurers, and fund managers – as well as other stakeholders with the necessary knowledge and skills to address climate change risks and capitalise on its opportunities. The course has been running since 2007 when UNEP FI found strong demand amongst its members and other financial institutions to learn about climate change and how it affects their industry.

The course continues to be highly successful, offered as a 3 week-course in English, with an average time commitment of two hours per day from Monday to Friday. The timetable is flexible, with participants able to set their own study times. Upon successful completion of the course participants will receive a certificate of completion from UNEP FI.

Please find attached the following three documents giving you more information about the course:
