About the course

Finding opportunity and managing risk in transition to a low-carbon economy

As long as temperatures and sea levels continue to rise and with them climate-related financial risks, central banks, supervisors, and financial institutions will continue to raise the bar to address these climate-related risks and to ‘green’ the financial system. We need collective leadership and action across countries and we need to be ambitious.

Mark Carney, Governor, Bank of England

The transition to a low carbon economy is already underway. Some of the world’s largest asset-holders are adjusting their investment portfolios to align with climate and carbon policy implications.

The Institute for Sustainable Finance Canadian businesses, financial institutions, asset managers, and investors need to become well-versed in the emerging practice of sustainable finance.

Queen’s Executive Education has partnered with the Institute for Sustainable Finance to offer a 2 ½-day certificate program in sustainable investing.

Through expert speakers, panel discussions with industry, and case studies, participants will acquire leading-edge insights and emerging best practices. Topics will include: ESG strategies and roles, impact investing, risk assessment, green taxonomy, infrastructure and real estate, and sustainalytics and more.
