Sustainability Banking Global Best Practices

Why Attend

The crises have emphasized the importance of increasing our resilience to environmental and social (E&S) risks, with COVID-19 a dress rehearsal for the disruptive impacts of climate change and nature loss; with the 2008 financial crisis, the financial industry all over the world has deeply affected. Moving into the future, it will be more relevant for banks and other financial institutions to implement robust measures to address these emergencies. This McTimothy Training ‘Sustainability Banking Best Practices’ available in Ghana, Liberia, Kenya and Dubai, etc. training course is a comprehensive program that equips participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of sustainability banking and best practices.

These shocks are accelerating the digital and sustainable transformation of banks. The banking industry is vital to achieving sustainable development due to its unique intermediation role, essential for mobilizing financial resources toward sustainable goals. Sustainable banking integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into traditional banking and sets ESG benefits as a key objective. Capital market decisions used to be based on a two-dimensional risk and return analysis. The new era of sustainable banking is based on three dimensions: risk, return, and impacts.
