About the course

Risk management plays an important role in the ESG industry. Companies need to identify and evaluate the potential ESG risks they face, such as risks related to climate change, human rights, and corruption, and implement measures to mitigate or manage those risks. As more investors, regulators, and stakeholders are becoming increasingly interested in ESG factors, companies are expected to have robust risk management processes in place to identify, evaluate, and manage ESG risks.

The ESG Risk Management masterclass would consist of a combination of instructor-led training and interactive activities, delivered across two 4-hour sessions over two days. These trainings would be led virtually by a senior subject matter expert. The study-case discussions, interactions, Q&A sections, and networking with trainers will provide participants, practical application of knowledge that emphasises and reinforces real world practice.

DAY 1

  • Assess a company and its clients’ vulnerability to financially material ESG issues and integrate ESG into their decision making and reporting.

  • Understand what ESG factors drive growth and their importance to regulators.

  • Understand how environmental, social and governance factors impact financial performance, and their transmission channels affecting revenue, cost, capex, and opex

  • Become familiar with global ESG frameworks, including the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement, and evolving reporting requirements, such as TCFD.

DAY 2

  • Gain awareness of clients’, customers’ and stakeholders’ expectations regarding ESG and the risks and opportunities these may pose to companies.

  • Appreciate the difference between physical and transition risks, how they manifest and how they can be managed.

  • Discover and explore the different approaches being used to measure ESG risks and mitigate their impacts.

  • Apply the learnings from the course in two group-based exercises assessing two sectoral-based case studies on financially material ESG impacts.

  • Case studies and best practices

  • Group Activities
