Sustainable Finance

Erasmus University Rotterdam

How can the financial sector contribute, or even speed up, businesses’ transition to long-term value creation within a sustainable economy? If it means combining financial, social and environmental values, what pathways and challenges are there for sustainable investing and lending?

Long-term value creation

The key challenge is to plan for a long term integration of the financial, social and environmental dimensions. The whywhat and how of integrated and sustainable finance are addressed in this three-day RSM Executive Education programme. During workshop sessions you will learn practical tools for implementing sustainable investing and lending, and explore the change management issues that put it in motion.

RSM’s world-class academics and leading experts in asset management and banking will show you how social and environmental dimensions can be integrated without sacrificing returns. After the course you will be able to contribute to a financial sector which fulfils its role in society by allocating funds towards sustainable companies and projects.
