Why take this course?
EDHEC is a premier European business school offering industry leading programs and courses. They have several online course offerings that we have reviewed on BankersByDay and this one on sustainable investment is equally impressive and worth adding to your CV.
The core aim of this course is to demystify the relationship between climate change and economy/ Finance. The financial world has a key role to play in solving this crisis, along with scientific, engineering and economic efforts. The courses in module each focus on one of these areas and cover them all one-by-one.
First up is the science and engineering of climate change so lay the groundwork of the problem. Economics and policies are up next with a deep dive into the main approaches used by economists and governments to help reduce emissions. The best solutions are ones that are self-perpetuating and that is what economists hope to create. And you will learn about the all the key ideas in this sphere.
Financing and investing constitute the latter half of this specialisation with dozens of hours spent on various topics. This includes household, government and corporate investment, investor-led decarbonization of business processes, issuance of green securities, central bank efforts and other such tools. You will also learn about the methods used to identify, measure and reward financial investments that help tackle climate change."
