Feedback from 2012:
“I applaud the Centre for Responsible Banking and Finance for bringing together – in such a real-world context – the theoretical and practical elements of ESG integration. With this course, Dr. Hoepner and his team are helping finance professionals to recognise the materiality of ESG issues within a mainstream financial mindset, and as a result make more informed investment decisions.” Mais Hayek, Hermes Equity Ownership Services, London, UK
“Thanks for a great experience at St Andrews. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and weekend and look forward to keeping in touch with everyone.” Joy Williams, Ontario Teacher’s Pension Plan, Toronto, Canada
