Course Description

Sustainable finance is now a hot topic for investors, banks and businesses around the world. It is becoming increasingly sophisticated and popular with new frameworks, initiatives and financial products.  

Even though Sustainable Finance has a lot of potential, it still has a long way to go before it can help us achieve the SDGs. The UN estimates the gap in financing to achieve the SDGs is at 2.5 trillion dollars per year. 

So, how do we ensure sustainable financing can help us achieve the SDGs by 2030? The first step is understanding what sustainable finance is and how it works.
