CII to help launch new ESG qualifications

The Chartered Insurance Institute has partnered with the newly launched International Association for the Sustainable Economy to create environmental, social and corporate governance qualifications.

The CII will join the association’s board and academic committee to help to create the content for the ESG exams.

IASE expects to offer the certification of professionalism in ESG knowledge via online exams in Q4 this year.

Keith Richards, managing director of engagement at the CII, said: “ESG considerations have been growing in prominence within the institutional market for a good number of years and this is starting to flow into the retail market.

“The IASE qualifications will be designed in collaboration with highly experienced ESG professionals from multiple geographies and industries around the world.”

IASE chair, Javier Manzanares Allen, said: “IASE seeks to be the reference in ESG at an international level that aspires to deepen the sustainable development of our society by certifying professionals in ESG matters and in an environment of continuous innovation.

“The association will initially have two types of certification, the first (International Sustainable Finance) aimed at the financial sector, with specialisations in the banking, insurance, savings banks and microfinance sector, and the second (International Sustainable Business) aimed at the business sector.”
