In 2017 UNEP FI will once again offer its impactful training for the finance sector. This year the following courses are being offered: 

Environmental and Social Risk Analysis
Corporate Eco-efficiency in Financial Institutions
• Climate Change: Risks & Opportunities for the Finance Sector 2.0 – an updated course with new content. The details of this course will be available on the UNEP FI website later this year.

About the Courses
UNEP FI and its partners have been training the staff of financial institutions all over the globe since 2005 via in-person workshops and online training courses. A total of 4500 employees have taken part, and courses are offered in English, French and Spanish. Training is delivered by highly qualified independent experts from all over the world, and last year, our courses qualified for the UN Environment gender-responsive climate action stamp. In a recent survey of Environmental and Social Risk Analysis course participants, 92% reported that the training gave them skills that allowed them to be more effective in their job.
