Course Overview

Global sustainability challenges – including climate change, natural resource depletion, and rising inequality – are affecting the commercial environment in a way that presents both risks and opportunities for the financial sector*. The Sustainable Finance online short course from the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) gives you the tools needed to address and take advantage of these changes. Over the course of eight weeks, you’ll gain an understanding of how the current financial system works, the social and environmental pressures it faces, and how it can be rewired to create better value for society and your organisation. With expert guidance from CISL faculty, you’ll develop the ability to channel your organisation’s financial success through sustainable approaches and initiatives such as the integration of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing, impact investing, and positive screening. You’ll also unlock new perspectives on how businesses, banks, and insurers are shifting investment towards more sustainable business models to lower risk and capture long-term growth opportunities. Walk away with tangible, real-world models that can deliver positive long-term returns for  your business, clients, and society.
