Regulators, investors and customers are increasingly looking at how banks are addressing issues such as climate change and governance, including how their loans books take into account ESG considerations. Sustainable finance looks to reward borrowers who perform well on ESG factors, given that this likely signals a strong resilient business, able to service debt finance.
The course looks at key ESG issues, considering how these issues impact perceived risks at industry and firm level. Approaches to initially screen investments are analysed and the ways to incorporate ESG factors into a formal credit analysis processed are covered.
