New Professional Diploma in Sustainable Finance Reporting & Disclosures Announced

Cutting-edge new programme developed and delivered by industry and academic experts specialising in ESG reporting

Sustainable Finance Skillnet and IOB are pleased to announce the introduction of an innovative Professional Diploma in Sustainable Finance Reporting and Disclosures. Supported by Skillnet Ireland, this cutting-edge qualification aims to empower professionals working in finance, reporting, and assurance functions within the financial services industry to take the lead in ESG regulatory reporting and disclosure activities.

As professionals seek to meet regulatory requirements and as the implementation of new mandatory EU sustainable finance reporting obligations approaches, it is crucial for the industry to be well-prepared. The launch of this diploma directly addresses the need for talent in this rapidly evolving field, further solidifying Ireland's position as a leading hub for sustainable finance.

Developed and delivered by academic and industry experts specialising in ESG reporting, the diploma will offer a comprehensive curriculum. Notably, we are excited to announce that David Carlin, an international climate governance expert, will serve as the faculty lead for the programme. Carlin is at the helm of the Task Force in Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) programme for the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI). David is also the founder of Cambium Global Solutions, an advisor to governments, corporates, and financial institutions on climate and sustainability. He has authored numerous reports that provide practical tools and guidance to firms looking to thrive in a changing world.

The start date for this programme will be 2 October 2023. Find out more about the programme and apply here.
