What are your sustainable finance training needs?

What professional development courses would you and your colleagues like next to upskill in the field of sustainable finance? Tell us by completing a global survey which has been developed through a partnership between UNEP FI and the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL). CISL has been working for nearly 30 years to build leadership capacity to tackle critical global challenges around the world.

We’d like to know what types of learning and development you are interested in, what learning needs you and your colleagues have and how you would like to learn. Survey results will inform UNEP FI’s and CISL’s strategy to develop sustainable finance training based on market needs data.

Our sustainable finance training services are part of our effort to fulfill the mission of UNEP FI to “identify, promote, and realise the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practice at all levels of financial institution operations”.

The primary aim of these services is to raise awareness and to build capacity in sustainable finance amongst UNEP FI Signatories and other financial institutions, as well as relevant stakeholders in governments, NGOs and academia, especially in developing countries and emerging markets.
