Certificate in Applied ESG Investing and Asset Management

Programme Overview

The course provides an overview of sustainable investing, including investing approaches and challenges in implementing ESG investing in both public and private investments. Sustainability is a core part of long-term value creation: sustainable finance means identifying the repeatable sources of economic return through a holistic understanding of the notion of capital, one that includes natural and human capital in addition to produced capital.


The course articulates the ways in which the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations, can impact the investment considerations of your stakeholders. Going beyond understanding the fundamental concepts of ESG, the course requires participants to put sustainable investing techniques into practice.


At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Explain impact measurement trends and developments to stakeholders
  • Research and support the impact measurement and reporting process
  • Research and advise customers and internal stakeholders on strategies and approaches to achieve sustainability-related goals and outcomes
  • Analyse and apply the knowledge on sustainability-related developments in the non-financial industries
