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?
The course will benefit senior and middle managers in the financial sector looking to extend their knowledge of sustainability; asset managers, bankers and sustainability managers.
There are interesting lecturers and guest lecturers, and the programme is full of insights. It is a small-scale set-up in which interaction between speakers and students is very much encouraged, and the topic is explained well from several angles. I have been involved with this topic for a little while already, but the programme provided me with more in-depth knowledge about sustainable finance, and gave me more insights into the issues that professionals in the financial sector encounter in practice. I learned what is already happening in the sector, and what additional actions governments can take to influence activities in the sector.

The investment decisions of today shape our future. We have a choice. Do we maximise short-term returns, or create long-term sustainable value? It is becoming increasingly clear that society is reaching ecological and social boundaries, and that we can only prosper if we respect these boundaries. Erasmus University’s Sustainable Finance programme provides investors and financiers with the tools to make the right decisions, now and in the future.
