About the course

Financial institutions play a pivotal role in the global transition to net-zero emissions. This training equips professionals with the skills required to implement effective decarbonisation initiatives within their organisations. Through group discussions, case studies and practical examples, participants will tackle common challenges faced by risk managers, including strategy, governance and risk management.

Attendees will develop a 100-day plan for a newly appointed head of climate and sustainability risk management, focusing on metrics, targets and climate risk self-assessments.

The programme also provides insights into complying with regulatory guidance, such as the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and teaches participants how to build a micro-level decarbonisation action plan. The course concludes with a three-point plan for firms to follow from 2024 to 2050.
