A growing awareness about sustainable development among consumers, producers and investors is prompting businesses to consider sustainability criteria, especially climate change, as an integral component of doing business. Threats and opportunities arise for financial institutions out of this trend towards sustainable development. Social and environmental risks affect the credit risk of borrowers and therefore pose an indirect threat to the banks’ profitability. More important, banks can play an active role in obtaining sustainable development goals by steering credit allocation towards the most sustainable projects and incorporating sustainability criteria in their lending terms. Investors can be offered a new range of products such as sustainable investment funds and green bonds.

This course focuses on the special role the financial sector can play in achieving sustainable development. We analyse current trends in sustainable business, cover diverse aspects of sustainable investments, study tools for sustainable risk management and effective integrated financial reporting. The course provides students with theoretical and practical tools used in sustainable banking and financial management.
