The Training Programme run by the UNEP FI Climate Change Working Group and UNEP FI Training Department offers an online course and in-person worskhops on this important issue.
Through the running of the first course in 2007, UNEP FI found strong demand amongst financial institutions to learn about climate change and how it affects their industry, so the course was run in 12 editions since then. Today, with the climate change agenda becoming even more relevant for the financial services sector, UNEP FI – with the support of CAF, the Latin American Development Bank – offered for the first time at the end of 2018 the new online course on “Climate Change & the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD): Risks & Opportunities for the Banking Industry”. It aims at supporting banking organizations as lenders carry out TCFD-responsive assessments & disclosures, and is based on the groundbreaking work of the UNEP FI pilot groups on TCFD adoption.
UNEP FI also offers tailored in-person workshops on Climate Change for the Financial Sector.
Trainings under the Programme include:
