Course 2: Sustainable Corporate Financing – Application

The financial sector can play a key role in a transition towards sustainable development. Finance professionals are in a position to strategically contribute to an alignment of the real economy with sustainability targets by allocating capital in all forms, such as bank lending and direct, as well as indirect, equity, and debt investments. These targets concern the environment, and society at large, including future generations.

Financial institutions need to strategically address potential financial and sustainability-related risks to address sustainability issues. In the environmental dimension, increasingly rigid policies and regulations force financial market participants to integrate these aspects into their operations and adjust their reporting accordingly.

On the other hand, the transition of the economy towards more sustainability or the development of sustainability solutions will lead to additional and specific financing needs.
