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 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.
By the end of the first module, participants will have reviewed and have a high level understanding of the new Sustainable Finance Regulatory Horizon and the main obligations for financial market participants:
Module 1 will cover:
- European Commission action plan on financing sustainable growth and the EU Green Deal
- Regulation 2020/852 on the establishment of a framework to facilitate sustainable investment (“Taxonomy regulation”)
- Regulation 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial sector (the “SFDR”)
- Regulation 2019/2089 on low carbon and positive carbon impact benchmarks
- Amendments to UCITS, AIFMD, MiFID II, Solvency II, IDD directives
- Modifications to the Non-Financial Reporting Directive
