Following the 2008 financial crisis, the financial industry is brought face to face with its own inconsistencies and shortcomings. The industry is increasingly becoming disharmonious with social and environmental realities.
Realizing financial industry gaps, MOSTADAM, in response, was initiated by Arab African International Bank (AAIB) in cooperation with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and Egyptian Corporate Responsibility Center (ECRC) in 2014. It is focused on capacity building, advocacy and advancing sustainable products and services.
From November 5-8, 2017 Geoffrey Mazullo, Principal, Emerging Markets ESG, delivered in Cairo a four-day certified training course – Introduction to Sustainable Finance – as part of the Mostadam platform. This was the third edition of the introductory course; the inaugural course was delivered in November 2014 and a second edition was delivered in March 2017.
30 participants attended the course – 29 bankers from eight banks and a faculty member from Heliopolis University.
Details about the course, including agenda and description, may be found in the course brochure, which you may download here.
