ESG & Sustainable Finance Executive Training Programme delivered successfully by Global Sustain Group & DCarbon
An ongoing effort to promote Green and Sustainable Finance in Egypt
DCarbon proudly aspires to contribute to the integration of Sustainable Finance Frameworks, Standards, and related sustainable finance products at the national level. In this way, we aim to support the Egyptian government and the local market to:
- attract foreign investments
- adopt and mobilize sustainable financial instruments such as green bonds, and sustainability-linked loans
- promote project financing opportunities from international financial institutions like EBRD, IFC, and EIB.
To this end, Egypt will have adequate support from all stakeholders to achieve the targets of the National Sustainable Development Strategy- Egypt’s Vision 2030, the Paris Agreement, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
At DCarbon, we acknowledge that to achieve these developments, all finance, as well as corporate professionals, need to enrich their knowledge of green and sustainable finance.
For this reason, the first of its kind Sustainable Finance Training Programme in Egypt was delivered in September 2020 by DCarbon in cooperation with our strategic partner, Global Sustain Group.
In continuation of our efforts, DCarbon and Global Sustain Group delivered successfully the ESG & Sustainable Finance Executive Training Programme on 5-7 April 2021 in Cairo. This Executive Training Programme marks the official launch of the “Green and Sustainable Finance Certificate” provided by the UK-based Chartered Banker Institute for the first time in Egypt.
The purpose of this training was to assist our participants from key sectors such as banking, transportation, F&B, construction materials, and academia, among others, in developing their knowledge and expertise of Green and Sustainable Finance and get prepared to take the Green and Sustainable Finance Certificate provided by the Chartered Banker Institute, the largest professional body for bankers in the UK.
The Certificate in Green and Sustainable Finance encompasses broader aspects of sustainability, aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and helps participants develop their understanding of, and apply, green and sustainable finance principles and practice in their roles and within their organizations.
Following our Programme, learners will take the exam of the Institute and upon completion of the Certificate, they will be entitled to use the professional accreditation and designation: Green and Sustainable Finance Professional ™.
We would like to thank everyone for their participation in this successful event and especially, our strategic partner, Global Sustain Group, and Mr. Michael Spanos for the high-level practical knowledge and international experience sharing, along with the excellent delivery of the training content, tailored to the needs of the Egyptian market.
We, DCarbon, profoundly continue our steadfast commitment and endeavors to supporting the national and private efforts for enhancing development plans across Egypt through green bond issuances and other sustainable finance products and services in cooperation with leading local and international banks, as well as strategic partnerships with key market participants.
