Program in sustainable finance
Supported by Vinnova, the Stockholm Sustainable Finance Centre in collaboration with Stockholm School of Economics Executive Education and the Swedish Society of Financial Analysts (SSF) has developed a two-day educational program in Sustainable Finance.
The program is tailored towards capital markets participants. With more than 25 participants, the first program was delivered on 6-7 November 2018, at the Stockholm School of Economics in Stockholm. Since then, it has been carried out once or twice a year, each with an international group of about 25 professionals from the financial industry.
Quotes from participants
” Two very interesting and inspiring days. We learned about the facts and research as well as about real examples from companies and from people facing these issues in their daily work. The subjects raised felt important and relevant. There was also time for open discussions and exchanges of experience between the participants, which I found valuable because it is useful and inspiring to hear how others work on these issues. “
good balance between theory and discussion
” The instructors are very knowledgeable and the teaching is informative and thorough. There is a good balance between theory and discussion, and different backgrounds among participants provide interesting insights and perspectives. Spending two days on this important topic was a big eye-opener. The financial institutions will play a significant role in the transition to a sustainable economy, and I would therefore recommend this program to people working in the industry. “
