    LEADING THE SUSTAINABILITY TRANSFORMATION IN BANKING

    Sustainability in the financial markets is increasingly gaining attention as opportunities and risks arising in this context are changing business practices. Banks are faced with the challenge of accompanying this transformational change and preparing their business for an even more competitive environment that goes beyond classical KPIs while taking environmental and social aspects as well as governance (ESG) into account.

    This has resulted in ESG considerations becoming not just a nice-to-have but a must-have. It has evolved from a risk management practice to a driver of innovation and new opportunities that create long-term value for business and society. ESG covers environmental issues like climate change and resource scarcity; social issues like labour practices, talent management and data security; as well as governance matters like board diversity and business ethics.

    This flagship programme by the Asian Banking School in collaboration with the renowned Frankfurt School of Finance & Management (Frankfurt School) has been designed specifically for senior level management of banks and finance-related institutions to deepen their knowledge in ESG and take a stronger role in the transformation towards a more sustainable (business) world. At the end of one week, participants will be equipped with the necessary tools and instruments to identify ESG related risks and opportunities, to develop suitable sustainable financial products and to design sound sustainable management processes and strategies for their businesses.

  • Programme Outline
    Monday, 10 October 2022
    Morning Session : Welcome and Keynote Speech: Sustainability in the Financial Sector - A Practitioner’s Perspective

    The first session will be an introduction to the Programme and what to expect in the week. This will be followed by a talk from a leading industry practitioner on sustainability relating to the financial sector.

    Morning Session : Discovering the E, S and G - The Role of Finance in Sustainability Transformation

    Sustainability has been on the public agenda for many years and received a significant push with the adoption of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015. This module sets the scene and introduces the world of sustainability by providing an overview of the different rationales why integrating sustainability considerations into business decisions and financial markets is becoming increasingly important. We will have a closer look at why a transformation towards a more sustainable world is important and discover the role of finance in the light of the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. We will also dismantle the elements which contribute to sustainable finance, namely impact, risk, and opportunities.

    Afternoon Session : Discovering the E, S and G - Sustainable Finance in 2022

    The adoption of two notable international agreements in 2015 – the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on global climate change – has confronted the financial sector with completely new challenges. In this context, the debate about financial market regulation as a means to achieving greater sustainability of the financial sector’s products, services and processes has gained considerable attention. This session, therefore, will introduce students to the most relevant regulatory instruments to support a transformation of the economy induced by the financial sector.

    Afternoon Session : Sustainable Finance in Practice - Case Studies

    In this session, we will provide examples from industry leaders who have successfully implemented sustainable finance strategies, practices and operations.

    Welcome Dinner

    This dinner will provide the opportunity for networking and building relationships.

    Tuesday, 11 OCTOBER 2022
    Morning Session : Impact - Aligning Business with Sustainability Goals
    For financial institutions, it is key to be prepared for the transformation. But how can financial institutions align with the sustainability agenda and how does this work in practice for climate change? In this module, we will show different pathways and strategies for financial institutions to mainstream sustainability and identify different challenges and obstacles and provide the solutions to overcome them for a successful transformation. We will also have a look at the role of taxonomies in this regard.
    Morning Session : Discovering the C in E: Climate Scenarios and Analysis
    Global warming above 2°C relative to the pre-industrial period could lead to adverse economic and social consequences. Financial and non-financial institutions are both likely to be heavily affected by climate change in the mid- to long term through physical risks and transition risks. To help organisations prepare themselves to better understand future scenarios, we will introduce the concept, methodology and techniques of climate scenario analysis. We will also present several climate scenario-based tools that can be applied in various areas to enable organisations to set science-based targets for emission reduction, identify climate-related risks and/or to check the consistency of an investment portfolio.
    Afternoon Session : Change Management – Creating the Sustainability Impact You Want For Your Institution
    Sustainability is not a trend but will become the new standard. Institutions and organisations, therefore, have to adjust existing business models and processes. In this session, we will showcase how financial institutions can manage and accompany the (institutional) change towards sound sustainable business models. This includes management processes as well as technological evolution, process reviews and organisational restructuring. Through the analysis of different megatrends (such as digitalisation, health, climate change and natural resources), the bridge to questions of sustainability and strategic orientation is built.
    Afternoon Session : Change Management - Case Studies
    In this session, we will provide case studies of institutions that have successfully gone through a change process by either applying new management practices or implementing new products or services.
    Guided City Tour
    Participants will be taken on a guided city tour in the evening to get an opportunity to see the many interesting sights that Frankfurt has to offer.
    Wednesday, 12 OCTOBER 2022
    Morning Session : Pricing the Risks in Sustainability Transformation
    Pricing risks and opportunities is one of the basic mechanisms that make financial systems work. In this session, we will introduce how risks arise from sustainability aspects and how they can be taken into consideration in decision-making processes. We will explore how sustainability risks are measured and showcase how FIs can implement sound sustainability risk management frameworks. Participants will understand how to identify key sustainability risks and contribute to the FIs response to these risks.
    Morning Session : Regulatory Trends in Emerging Markets
    The adoption of two notable international agreements in 2015 – the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on global climate change – has confronted the financial sector with completely new challenges. In this context, the debate about financial market regulation as a means to achieving greater sustainability of the financial sector’s products, services and processes has gained considerable attention. This session, therefore, will introduce students to the most relevant regulatory instruments from industrialised and emerging markets to support a transformation of the economy induced by the financial sector.
    Afternoon Session : Site Visit – Best Practices in Sustainable Finance

    Participants will visit selected financial sector actors in the city of Frankfurt and have the opportunity to learn from the first movers in the field of sustainable finance and directly address their questions to well positioned practitioners in the field.

    Thursday, 13 OCTOBER 2022
    Morning Session : Opportunities - New Products and Services

    There are many opportunities for financial institutions arising from a transformational shift towards sustainability. This module provides an overview on sustainable finance-related opportunities and explores how sustainability products work and how they can be set-up in practice. Participants will get an understanding of why lenders and borrowers are interested in sustainable finance and what “green” or “sustainable” really means when talking about associated products and services.

    Morning Session : Sustainable Investment Strategies

    As sustainability issues become increasingly important for asset owners and investors, the sustainable finance industry has evolved from offering lighter-touch approaches towards driving more sophisticated and intensive ways of engagement for these issues. This session explains the different approaches that are used for measuring and managing the non-financial value of investments i.e. the “sustainability” part of an investment and financing. Participants will learn how to identify the different strategies (“pathways”), from least intense to most intense, allowing them to communicate their mandate for sustainability by selecting the pathway that needs to be followed.

    Afternoon Session : Data and Disclosure - Putting Sustainability into Numbers

    Investors and stakeholders are increasingly requesting financial institutions to disclose non-financial information about their activities. Therefore, we will first discuss why the disclosure of non-financial information is becoming an essential exercise for financial institutions and how (regulatory) requirements (e.g. TCFD) could be best implemented. Participants will learn how to incorporate sustainability reporting into management and organisational processes and to communicate effectively to diverse stakeholders. To do so, ESG data is an important information source. We will therefore answer the question of how ESG data is defined and which sources and information are needed for sound decision-making. This will be followed by a classification of ESG data and an overview of how ESG key performance indicators (KPIs) may look like.

    Afternoon Session : Deep Dive : ESG Ratings and Labels

    After having learned about ESG data and disclosure requirements, we will take participants on a journey to explore the world of ESG ratings and labels. We will introduce you to the most relevant providers and products in the market. A systematic approach to categorising (including coverage, scope and methodology) the various ESG rating products helps you to understand and to choose the right approach for your business.

    Farewell Dinner
    The farewell dinner will be held to celebrate the closing of a successful week and new friendships made.
    Friday, 14 OCTOBER 2022
    Morning Session : Competition - Applying the Knowledge
    It is time to apply the newly acquired knowledge. In this session, participants will prepare a competitive pitch and/or analyse the key three sustainability elements (impact, risk, and opportunities) on case studies from selected banks.
    Afternoon Session : Keynote Speech & Round Table : Trends and Challenges in Sustainable Finance
    The training week concludes with a keynote speech and round table conducted by recognised experts and practitioners in the field of sustainable finance. Together with the participants, they will discuss future challenges in the journey towards a more sustainable economy.
    Certificate Ceremony
    This ceremony will see participants receiving their certificates and officially mark the end of the one-week programme.
    TRAINING METHODOLOGY

    The programme will be a blend of lectures, case discussions and in-class development of practical illustrations to allow for a hands-on experience with the concepts studied and deep learning. A joint excursion to first movers in the field of sustainable finance completes the programmes and additionally caters to the creative learning environment.

    BECOMING ALUMNI

    Participants will become part of Frankfurt School’s vibrant Alumni Community after successful completion of this programme. You will be provided access to information specifically for the FS Alumni & Friends so that you can stay in touch with the School and other alumni members via online platforms and digital networks.
