INTRODUCTION TO ESG / for DB Pension Schemes
All prices are per person,
'Introduction to ESG' is an independent and impartial course focussing on the principles and definitions of Environmental, Social & Governance and responsible investment.
Unlike many courses for the finance industry, this course has been designed specifically for pension trustees. The expert content has been curated from experienced asset owner industry leaders and is presented in a jargon-free, accessible format.
In this course, you will learn in simple, plain English the fiduciary duty requirements and its relationship with ESG, as well as uncover some of the most common misconceptions and myths that have been present in the industry for many years.
By the end of the two modules, you will have a completely clear grasp of ESG, know how to understand your scheme’s place on the spectrum of capital, and appreciate the wider business, financial, and public context in which ESG sits.
