Event Details

An Intro to Green Finance: SDG goals and why they matter to finance professionals' builds on a pervious webcast in this series, addressing key green finance topics. 

Ahead of COP27  (6-18 November 2022) we will tackle the terminology surrounding this global event and explain how these terms relate to the role of finance professionals within both banking and accounting. 

If you have ever wondered how the topics covered in COP27 relate to your role, or how you can implement key aspects into your standard work practice, this webcast can offer a useful insight into ESG matters and Green Finance principles. 

We hope that you can join us for this online event, free for all to attend, as part of this collaborative 'An Intro to...' series held between our three organisations.
