Target Audience

The EFFAS Certified ESG Analyst® (CESGA®) programme is particularly aimed at financial analysts and portfolio managers who want to integrate ESG data in their capital allocation processes, but also, in general, all investment professionals increasingly committed to ESG issues. Other specialists such as corporate sustainability officers, investor relations, auditors and consultants will find this course interesting to develop a better understanding of the needs of capital markets in terms of ESG information. Summing up it is ideal for asset owners, asset managers, corporate consultants, financial planners, and family offices who wish to embrace ESG integration holistically.

Geographical Focus

ESG is a global approach. With Europe leading the way with ESG standards, CESGA® covers general global standards and analyses the European regulatory developments in depth because they might be a blueprint for other regions. Its content is constantly updated to reflect regional developments (e.g. Module 10). Earth Academy is providing CESGA only in USA
