Programme overview

Sustainable business is successful business. Sustainability and the change toward a carbon-neutral society challenge companies to renew their strategy, operations, and reporting and to ensure the conditions for financing also in the future. Integrating corporate responsibility reporting into the audited annual report transfers the responsibility of the sustainability indicators to the company board. Therefore, responsibility aspects will also be even more central to the management agenda, as they are part of financial management and profitable business.

The upcoming changes in sustainability reporting will affect all companies – either in the form of mandatory reporting requirements, access to finance, price or customer requirements and market pressure. Do you know how these will affect your business?

Through the Sustainable Finance programme, you will understand what kind of changes in business management and reporting your company needs to prepare for to build a strategic competitive advantage from a sustainability perspective. The programme focuses on the economic aspect of sustainability and discusses the fundamental concepts of sustainable development and responsible enterprise, the measurement of the different perspectives of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), and the critical reporting reference frameworks (GRI, SASB, TCFD) and sustainability ratings. In addition, the programme will focus on future EU sustainable finance legislation and its expected impact on business, in particular sustainability reporting and access to finance.
