AGRC introduces its Level 3 Certificate on ESG Principles and Standards

Via this intermediate certificate, professionals can gain a better understanding of ESG, its reporting obligations, and what it takes to build a strong ESG function for their organisation.

LONDON, Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Association of Governance, Risk and Compliance (AGRC) is excited to announce the release of its Level 3 professional qualification in ESG principles and standards, a certificate that will help the modern-day professional gain a deeper understanding of ESG issues and what is required to set up a robust, durable, and efficient ESG programme for their organisation.

This certificate is an excellent choice for all professionals?from directors to junior officers and recent graduates?who want to learn the ins and out of this trendy new initiative in the governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) sector and contribute their grain of salt to their organisation's practices in this field.

Mateo Jarrin Cuvi, who serves as Global Manager for Partners and Media at AGRC, said: "ESG has been growing in importance during the past few years with more and more companies paying attention to how they can contribute to the environment and society at large. With our AGRC Certificate in ESG, we hope to introduce both young and more experienced professionals to the main principles and standards ruling this sector and prepare them to help their organisations comply with any relevant obligations and reporting requirements."

Some of the content covered in this certificate includes the stakeholder theory, corporate social responsibility vs. ESG, sustainability, green finance, the main principles of responsible banking, investment, and insurance, global initiatives such as the Paris Agreement and the European Green Deal, ESG reporting standards and frameworks, and ESG investing strategies, to name a few.

The certificate will be available via AGRC's approved training partners?the London Governance and Compliance Academy and the European Institute of Management and Finance?in the modality of a 15-to-20-hour self-paced, online training programme that combines text with video content.

Candidates are expected to complete the course and pass a 40-multiple-choice-question exam to achieve their professional qualification in ESG principles and standards. As part of this package, participants will also receive one year of free membership to AGRC and the right to use the PAGRC acronym as a professional member of this fast-growing network of GRC experts.
