Joining forces for education
The LGX Academy, as part of LuxSE, has been granted the status of ‘Gestionnaire d’un Organisme de Formation Professionnelle Continue’ by the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. To increase its scope and capacity, the LGX Academy has entered into a partnership with Luxembourg’s House of Training in the field of executive sustainable finance education. The collaboration with House of Training marks an important milestone in both institutions’ efforts to provide the market with innovative learning solutions in the field of sustainable finance.
“Together with LGX, we are very proud to help broadening the development of expertise in sustainable finance, one of the important contemporary challenges not only of Luxembourg’s financial centre but also of the EU,” commented Luc Henzig, CEO of House of Training.
The LGX Academy provides certified, tailor-made trainings to financial professionals and students seeking an in-depth understanding of the principles and foundations of sustainable finance, as well as its underlying drivers and related market practices.
In a first phase, three courses are available along with an in-depth glossary and knowledge sharing resource page: 1. Fundamentals in sustainable finance, 2. Products and Standards and 3. Taxonomies, Reporting and External Reviews. The courses are organised in small groups and are adapted to the level of understanding of the participants, which—regardless of background—share the ambition to contribute to a more inclusive and low-carbon economy.
Sustainable financial education in high demand
Over the past months, the LGX Academy has worked with internationally recognised institutions such as the International Finance Corporation, Banque Internationale à Luxembourg and the University of Luxembourg to provide sustainable finance trainings on a national and international level, including previous trainings in Luxembourg and Stockholm.
As the world’s leading platform for green, social and sustainability bonds worldwide, the LGX Academy lecturers are already in high demand for sustainable finance courses and presentations in Europe and beyond.
The free webinar Green, Social and Sustainability Bonds in the context of COVID-19: Challenges and Opportunities will be held on 26 May at 15:00 CET.
