„An ESG positioning in corporate banking combines managing risk with leveraging the enormus revenue potential that the transformation of the economy offers banks.“

ESG for Corporate Bankers

Sustainability is a megatrend that affects all areas of our society and should be high on the agenda of credit institutions and other financial service providers. Particularly in corporate banking, not only the political and regulatory environment, but also the clients themselves have high expectations of the financial industry. Hence, it is indispensable for executives in corporate banking to promptly review their action plans and define their specific ambition.

A multitude of new requirements now need to be addressed: defining the strategy, implementing appropriate management and planning systems, and aligning previous structures and business practices.

The involvement of sustainability experts in the various areas gives you a competitive edge and is a major success factor for the future performance of financial services companies.

To enable you to support your corporate clients in their sustainable transformation and thus stand out from the competition, we have developed two certifications for corporate bankers that are geared to the participants’ level of knowledge.

  • Customized: contents are tailored specifically to the needs of your corporate bankers and can be applied directly to their day-to-day work

  • Dovetailed: the concepts presented are aligned with the needs of regional banks and take into account additional best practice approaches

  • Tailored to corporate bankers: study programs can be easily integrated into the daily routine of a corporate banker (e.g. self-study component, evening webinars and classroom sessions on 2 days max.)

  • Sales-oriented: strong focus on identifying and leveraging ESG revenue potential and managing ESG risks




Target audience

The two seminars are aimed in particular at corporate and commercial bankers but are also suitable for back and middle office employees such as credit officers.
