Sustainable finance for a more sustainable future
Private sector development in developing and emerging markets increasingly runs into the need of financiers for projects that meet environmental, social and governance criteria – and that render a net-positive impact on the community, the business environment, the natural environment, et cetera. But what is sustainable and impact investing and what should investees know about it to be able to successfully attract finance or investments?
In this highly interactive executive short course, with contributions from leading academics and experts from the field of sustainable and impact finance, you will be able to master this increasingly important subject to influence the direction of your business, your economy, your society. Whether you work in the financial sector, an industry, the government, a multilateral organization, or an NGO – understanding sustainable and impact finance helps you to address the challenges towards a prosperous society – and all that is comprised by it – now and for the future generations.
The course addresses the four main questions regarding this rapidly emerging field of academic study and practical implementation:
- What is it?
- Why is it important?
- How does it work?
- Who is doing it and where can I get it?
The course will be held in Maastricht, while also sessions are likely to take place in Amsterdam and/or The Hague – where we will visit leading organizations regarding all facets of S&IF. If you want to become savvy about this new and emerging field, the Netherlands is an excellent place to start. It is among the leading centers in the world in terms of knowledge, expertise and practical experience.
