Focus on typical loopholes – practical examples – discussions on how to solve problems – proven ideas
What kind of courses do we offer?
These courses are different from what you might expect. The courses
Sustainability.Training – this is what our courses cover:
For the “risk related” courses the idea is NOT:
The “business opportunity related courses” may give you some examples of what other financial institutions have successfully done in the larger field of “Green Finance”. However, more importantly, they will explain how financial institutions could ideally develop their own, individual business strategies.
The courses that focus on motivational aspects related to sustainable finance will provide you with some proven line of arguments when selling the idea of sustainable financing as well as proper E&S management for investment projects. These arguments may not be readily applicable to all thinkable scenarios but prepare you well for discussions with clients as well as colleagues.
Our courses target financial institutions that at least have a soft corner for environmental and social aspects related to their financing. This clearly includes corporate finance, investment banking (corporate advisory, structured lending and capital, trading), equity investments, project finance, project finance advisory, structured commodity finance, small and medium business lending, trade and leasing, and other forms of direct lending.
This clearly does not include financial institutions that engage in CSR-related activities in a minimum manner, but still expect that they can create highly positive brand image for the company by publicising their CSR efforts.
Very often our customers have a business relationship with a Development Financing Institution (DFI), a Development Bank or an Equator Principles Financing Institution which almost always will lead to E&S requirements to your lending. However, this is not a must, i.e. courses are meaningful to all financial institutions interested in sustainable finance.
George is the trainer of most E-learning courses provided by sustainability.training. He will guide you through the training modules – step by step. In the trainings you will benefit from his experience and his capability to address those issues that really matter.
You will then meet different characters in our trainings each of which with a very specific job role (Managing Director, Investment Manager, Client, E&S Officer, etc.). The characters interact with each other, discuss problems that you also may face and jointly develop suitable solutions. You will recognize our team as avatars for people you meet in your daily work.
