“Obtaining the ESG Certificate as one of the first Swiss participants in the pilot programme was a very valuable learning experience for me. In my view, the syllabus covers the key issues of ESG investing in a concise manner, and this is well implemented in the corresponding training material. The strong focus throughout the chapters on the materiality of ESG factors conveys a practical understanding of ESG investing.”
