These are some of the questions answered by this new training course. It is made up of two main parts: the first focuses on the scientific issues of the sustainable transition, the second on the Sustainable Finance standards that investors must or will have to comply with.

Nearly twenty educational videos, complemented by quizzes to assess the assimilation of knowledge, present the essential notions of the Sustainable Finance regulatory framework: European Taxonomy, Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), Article 29 of the Energy-Climate Act, Task Force on Financial Climate Disclosure (TCFD).

This training course is intended for all employees of investment management companies (SGP), as well as their investments. The training aims to give everyone a common ground on climate and ESG issues. It allows everyone to understand which texts will have a concrete impact on their activity and in what way. With this in mind, its content has been designed to be accessible to all audiences.

For Claire Chabrier, President of France InvestIt is an innovative approach for France Invest to collaborate with AXA Climate School, which is a specialist in e-learning and affects many students. One of France Invest’s key missions is to commit to a just transition and sustainable growth, key to business performance. It is critical that sustainable finance issues are no longer the sole responsibility of the management company’s ESG managers, but are fully owned by each investor. This unprecedented formation allows these messages to be widely disseminated.

By Antoine Poincaré, VP School of Climate at AXA ClimateThis course arises in response to a demand that we have been seeing for several months within the investment funds with which our Consulting branch works. This collaboration with France Invest, with which we have co-constructed the content, will allow the widest possible dissemination to train the largest possible number of students in the challenges of Sustainable Finance.”.
