Frankfurt am Main, 27 June 2023 – The European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS) is pleased to announce that its CESGA programme has been listed among the certificate and training programmes for sustainable finance compiled by the Financial Services Agency (FSA), the financial supervisory authority in Japan. While the FSA’s list serves as a valuable reference for institutions and individuals seeking professional capacity building in sustainable finance, EFFAS recognizes that inclusion in this compilation does not imply endorsement by the FSA. Nonetheless, EFFAS firmly believes that the CESGA programme will be recognized by those interested in leveraging the FSA’s list as a comprehensive resource.
The CESGA programme, developed by EFFAS, equips financial professionals with the requisite knowledge and skills to navigate the intricacies of sustainable finance effectively. Addressing the growing demand for expertise in sustainable investment strategies, ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) analysis, and impact assessment, the CESGA programme provides participants with a deep understanding of sustainable finance principles. By completing the CESGA programme, finance practitioners can make informed decisions that align financial objectives with environmental, social, and governance considerations.
In the FSA’s official document, the CESGA programme is featured on page 6, appearing as the fifth line of the comprehensive table. EFFAS acknowledges that accessing the material on the FSA website may pose challenges, particularly for non-Japanese speakers. However, EFFAS is actively working towards enhancing accessibility and facilitating the translation of this information, demonstrating its commitment to global knowledge sharing and collaboration.
EFFAS Chairman Jesús Lopez Zaballos expressed satisfaction with the CESGA programme’s inclusion in the FSA’s list, stating, “While the FSA’s list serves as a valuable resource for those seeking information on sustainable finance certificate and training programmes, EFFAS is honoured to have the CESGA programme acknowledged in this compilation. We remain dedicated to advancing professional standards and fostering expertise in sustainable finance. The CESGA programme’s inclusion further exemplifies our commitment to contributing to the global development of sustainable finance practices. Our special gratitude to our friends at SAAJ, who supported EFFAS in the submission process.”
The FSA’s list of certificate and training programmes for sustainable finance serves as a reference guide for professionals seeking rigorous and reputable training opportunities. While EFFAS recognizes that inclusion in this list does not signify FSA endorsement, it underscores the comprehensive curriculum and relevance of the CESGA programme in the evolving landscape of sustainable finance.
EFFAS encourages professionals interested in sustainable finance to explore the CESGA programme as a recognized qualification. By augmenting their knowledge and skills in sustainable finance, individuals can actively contribute to transforming the financial sector into a more sustainable and responsible one.
