Sustainable Investing Masterclass Banner

Our Sustainable Investing Masterclass is a 1-day training course for financial professionals, affluent and retail investors (including bank clients), corporate sustainability professionals, and consulting and advisory professionals, even with no previous foundational knowledge of finance or sustainability. 

CSP has been at the heart of Sustainable Investing for seven years, both through our work with ultra wealthy private investors and through our groundbreaking research, which has accelerated the industries' understanding of how investors can have impact as well as integrate sustainability considerations.

This course synthesizes the latest thinking and ideas in sustainable investing into easy to understand frameworks that can be directly applied by all professionals.

A combination of theory and practice, this course includes high levels of interactivity and deep-dives to topics such as:

  1. Understand the role of finance and investing in helping us collectively achieve bold sustainability goals, such as the SDGs.
  2. Understand the contribution of various sustainable investing strategies and how they can be used by different types of investors.
  3. Understand the criteria needed for investors to generate positive change through their investments and navigate greenwashing.
  4. Understand the ways in which sustainable investment has interacted with business, policy and NGO’s and what professions exist in the space.
  5. Understanding impact investing with an overview of the different tools and approaches for impact investing across asset classes.

The course combines industry knowledge, both academic and practice, and maintains a focus on applicability. We offer this training online.


All participants will receive a UZH-issued certificate of completion. The program can be SAQ Swiss Association for Quality certified, upon request.
