"Most valued topics of the course were risk assessment and key risk indicators for this area."
EFG Hermes, Cairo

The events of 2020 brought risks related to public health, climate change, and diversity, equity, and inclusion to the forefront of public consciousness. Yet too many banks failed to effectively incorporate ESG risks into risk management or into their long-term strategies.

Today banks are considering about changes to the bank’s business model to bring ESG risk management into the centre of the organisation and its goals and missions.

During this course delegates will explore ESG and its role within risk management delving systematically the key issues facing banks;  the important topics of the governance of ESG and the impact of ESG matters on a bank. Delegates will learn the expectations of stakeholders and the reporting obligations, seeing how these are developing and identifying actions that are successfully being taken by banks to meet these challenges.

"it is comprehensive and meanwhile reflects a practical approach to implementation, which is helpful. Thank you once again for your insight and assistance"
Senior Risk Director, European bank, Greece
Who Should Attend

Designed for risk managers and teams at all levels within a bank with an interest in or an obligation to implement or manage ESG protocols, compliance and marketing, internal auditors, operations, IT, HR and consultants.
