Objectives

In today’s society sustainability has become a clear point of focus for most, if not all, companies and investment funds. Understanding what lies behind the E, the S and the G of ESG is key to defining a strategy fit for your organisation, whether a financial sector company, a corporate or an investment fund – a strategy, which, when successfully executed, effectively identifies the positive performance opportunities while managing the potential risks.

Having a strong ESG strategy is no longer just a “nice to have”. All market participants have to go beyond green washing and tighten their processes in the researching, hiring and monitoring of their operations, financing and investments if they don’t want to come under the spotlight for wrong ESG management. The case of the Abraaj fund in 2018, which was the biggest collapse in private equity history, still raises the question of why an apparently successful private equity firm that managed $14 billion and was an influential investor, went wrong.

Arendt, Label R and Ripple Effect have partnered and combined their expertise to propose a four-module training programme to guide you through the latest regulatory changes supporting the development of sustainable finance and ESG, as well as through the practical design and implementation of a sustainable investment strategy. The training programme also provides participants with a clear understanding of sustainability risks and how to manage them while providing participants with the keys to monitoring and reporting on sustainability-related matters.

Attendance of all four modules is recommended but not mandatory.

Content

By the end of the fourth module, participants will have:

  • Understood the major requirements of reporting to be made by corporates to their shareholders/investors and requirements laid out for reporting at the level of financial products and the financial organisations that promote and manage such products.
  • Understood the reporting requirements for and be familiar with the content of reports issued by Corporates / Investee companies, through the use of different examples of corporate reporting, including covering the most frequently used reporting frameworks, the EU reporting obligations e.g. Non-Financial Reporting Directive requirements, Taxonomy Regulation requirements etc.
  • Understood the reporting requirements of financial sector promoters and asset managers, and the product related reporting requirements, principally linked to the Regulation (2019/2088) on Sustainability related disclosures for the financial sector, as well as the Draft regulatory technical standards issued in an ESAs Joint Consultation Paper on ESG Disclosures.
  • Understood the other voluntary reporting standards available to financial sector organisations including UNPRI reporting requirements and ESG product labels
