Future proof your career: sustainable finance for bankers

The course will give you an extensive overview of the sustainable banking landscape.

In a special online session dedicated to sustainable banking, the LGX Academy has invited industry expert Thomas Verhagen, co-founder of WeESG, to teach you all about:

  • How environmental, social and governance issues are increasingly impacting different types of banks (eg retail, corporate, investment and wealth)

  • How banks are managing these risks, including in lending criteria

  • Key data sources and frameworks for integrating ESG into financial decision making, and how these are aggregated into firm-level reporting

  • Implications of new sustainable finance regulation such as SFDR and Mifid II

  • How sustainable banking has been increasingly influencing client relationships, in terms of risks as well as business opportunities via new product lines
