Continuing its commitment to drive the integration of extra-financial information in classic investment methods and as a pioneer in delivering structured training on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) EFFAS launches its new ESG Essentials® programme. The ESG Essentials provides participants with the fundamental concepts and requirements to give basic guidance to investors in ESG matters.
ESG factors are increasingly being incorporated into business risk assessment and in investment and financing decision-making processes. The ESG Essentials® is the choice for professionals in finance who want to get ahead and understand the global megatrends and equip themselves with the knowledge to navigate an evolving regulatory landscape.
According to Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 (SFDR), as of 10th March 2021 participants in financial markets and financial advisers must report on the integration of sustainability risks and the analysis of adverse incidences regarding sustainability in their processes and provide information on sustainability regarding financial products. For adequate advice and transparency in these matters, it is essential that participants in financial markets, advisors, and information providers have a basic knowledge of ESG.
With the EFFAS ESG Essentials® certification, professionals in the sector can demonstrate that they have acquired an understanding of the fundamentals of ESG to complement their professional knowledge.
