The FSA Credential combines two exams to assess professional expertise in the materiality of sustainability information for corporate performance and investment analysis. After passing Level I, candidates are identified as an “FSA Level II Candidate.” After passing Level II, candidates become an “FSA Credential Holder.”

Certified ESG
Analyst® 

CESGA

By

USA Only

With climate change and sustainability issues in the forefront of global agenda, the EFFAS Certified ESG Analyst qualification has registered exponential growth in Europe, Asia and increasingly the Americas since 2019.

Since its launch, there are currently more than 4,362 CESGA title holders globally. By the end of 2023, this figure is forecasted to be more than 6,000.

The EFFAS CESGA exam is a 2.5 hour long exam, which consists of 2 equally weighted parts:

  • 20 multiple choice questions (MCQ, 50% of exam score); and

  • a practical case study with 9 constructed-response style questions (50% of exam score). This is based on a company due diligence process from an ESG perspective.

As someone who has taken all three exams, I highly recommend Earth Academy. Anyone who wants to expand and deepen their knowledge and optimize their preparation for FSA (I+II), SCR or CESGA need look no further.
