Structure

Our online ESG courses are divided into four clearly differentiated modules:

01

MODULE 1

A general overview of the current international ESG context, as well as the background to climate change and the key factors involved in it, with a particular emphasis on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The main aspects of the sustainability strategies adopted by companies and financial institutions will be covered, in order to then address the key aspects of the effects of climate change, followed by topics relating to energy efficiency.

02

MODULE 2

An examination of all aspects relating to the environment, climate change, green transition and sustainable finance. Accordingly, this module looks at the background and history of aspects linked to green transition, to then address the opportunities that adequate management brings to the business and financial sector enabling institutions to evolve towards a much more sustainable model. Likewise, aspects linked to the measurement of ESG ratings and the most suitable mechanisms for setting carbon prices are dealt with. In addition, the module analyses the current role of consumers and their positive view of those companies that have responsible ESG-compatible policies.

03

MODULE 3

An analysis of crucial social issues, including: social pillars, the importance of introducing social and gender standards in companies and financial institutions, the future challenges facing organisations in terms of gender equality, the importance of having adequate mechanisms to facilitate and foster gender equality in companies' management bodies, creating the ESG culture at companies, active engagement of employees with the ESG policies that are implemented, the importance of the social inclusion of the most vulnerable sectors of society, etc.

04

MODULE 4

Multiple aspects related to organisation governance are tackled, such as: the importance of including ESG standards as central components of the governance model for all types of institutions; the analysis of the impact of regulation in connection with ESG which affects and will affect the future of organisations; the implementation of ESG factors in the organisation governance; as well as the involvement of shareholders in the corporate strategies of their respective companies.
