    Sustainable Finance Knowledge Certificate

    "We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator," declared UN secretary general António Guterres at the opening of COP27. While 'sustainability' is top-of-mind in many organisations today, what is holding us back?

    In this course, gain comprehensive insights into ESG data and FinTech, explore the challenges and opportunities of the net-zero transition, understand the state of ESG regulation, and prepare for the future of sustainable finance.

    Featuring speakers at the Singapore FinTech Festival 2022, the Sustainable Finance Knowledge Certificate is designed for professionals and enthusiasts. It provides learners with domain knowledge and real-world insights from industry experts and regulators.

    Students who pass the course are eligible for a Knowledge Certificate issued by Elevandi Education and SMU Academy, Singapore Management University.
