Description

ETHICAL FINANCE COURSE

This two day intensive practical course, designed by the Ethical Finance Hub, is aimed at professionals across the business spectrum looking for an insight into Ethical Finance. Whilst the industry is full of acronyms, “Ethical Finance” is used here as a generic all-encompassing umbrella term to represent a wide range of financial tools, including socially responsible investing; environmental, social and governance; sustainable finance; and financial inclusion.

The Course – designed, developed and delivered by some of the UK’s leading practitioners – will introduce the concept of Ethical Finance, explore the key principles of sustainable banking and responsible investing before concluding with a session dedicated to impact investing.

Learning objectives of the course include;

  • Describe Ethical Finance market structure, size and terminology
  • Understand and recognise how Ethical Finance principles / trends impact your organisation
  • Understand how the SDGs align to strategic priorities and can contribute to business growth
  • Identify key elements of sustainable banking and responsible investing
  • Describe impact investing and develop a basic framework to measure impact
  • Recognise correlation between environmental, social and governance performance and business success
  • Provide an ethical lens to organisational strategy (i.e. finance, marketing, procurement etc)
