ESG

ESG

ESG considerations have been growing in prominence within the institutional market for a good number of years and is increasingly prominent for the retail market and set to grow from a government, regulatory and investor perspective over the coming years.

The IASE qualifications will be designed in collaboration with highly experienced ESG professionals from multiple geographies and sectors around the world and enable holders to demonstrate their technical competence through certification to International standards. There are currently two types of certification, the first (International Sustainable Finance) aimed at the financial sector, with specialisations in the banking, insurance, savings banks and microfinance sector, and the second (International Sustainable Business) aimed at the business sector.

IASE works to develop these standards, certification requirements and body of knowledge so as to achieve commonality and harmony to the practice of the sustainability profession, even whilst recognizing country and regional specific differences.
