EIMF Certificate in Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) Regulations, Requirements and Reporting


Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Sustainability issues have been gaining growing prominence in the political agenda of the European Union and this has been reflected in the strategic aims and the regulatory initiatives of recent years. Even more, it is expected that an increasing number of regulations are to be passed in the coming years as the EU Green Deal is being materialised. At the same time, the shift to a Green Economy and Stakeholder Capitalism is being discussed and/or adopted in principle in other jurisdictions and international organisations. 

Within this evolving regulatory framework, all corporations, including financial institutions, need to adapt and comply accordingly. On the one hand, regulatory officials at the national level need to be better equipped so as to understand and implement the new regulatory framework, whilst on the other hand, compliance and ESG officials need to comprehend global developments; report and communicate ESG corporate policies and actions to stakeholders; and secure that compliance is achieved with the applicable regulations.  

`The aim of the certificate is to offer a thorough review of ESG and Sustainability, the regulatory developments at the European level, the requirements that need to be met by European corporations and how a company’s relevant ESG performance can be best reported and communicated. 


By the end of the programme, participants will be able to: 

  • Describe the EU Green Deal
