Green Finance and ESG Risks

Open seminar in Czech language

The seminar Green finance and ESG risk is organized as an open seminar for employees from different institutions and also as an in-house seminar organized for employees of clients with tailor made requirements.

Objectives of the seminar

This seminar will help you to understand what the concept of green finance and ESG (environmental, social and governance) risk means and how it is defined by societal demand and the emerging system of regulations and requirements. 
Green Finance and ESG risks are one of the EBA's priorities for the coming years. We therefore bring you an information-rich overview, which will discuss, among other things, the implications for companies in general as well as for banks directly, including the incorporation into capital requirements and reporting obligations. We will also help you navigate the related regulatory documents. Finally, we will review different perspectives on (un)green investment decision-making and approaches to incorporating ESG risks into corporate strategy.

For whom it is intended

The seminar is designed especially for managers and specialists responsible for risk management and compliance, whether ESG risks are their responsibility or only affect their organisation. However, it will also provide interesting insights for internal auditors, or product and business managers of the Corporate segment and of course for everyone who is involved in these areas.
