ICGN takes care to ensure high quality programmes to stimulate lively debate and thought-provoking discussions. Our events include international conferences, academic days, Governance Stewardship and Sustainability (GSS) training courses, workshops, webinars and bespoke events
Governance, Stewardship & Sustainability Training Courses
ICGN's training began with an award from the European Commission in 2011 to develop the first in-person programme on how to integrate ESG factors in investment decision making.
ICGN has recently restructured its course on ESG integration to focus on investor stewardship as a developing profession-- in a way that continues to include ESG integration as a fundamental component of stewardship. The course reviews the theoretical foundations of stewardship and corporate governance, and links these with ICGN’s Global Stewardship Principles and Global Governance Principles. Addresses practical questions facing institutional investors, including how to manage stewardship, how to implement it, and how to integrate ESG into investment decision-making and company analysis. Participants of the GSS course will receive a free copy of the GSS Book.
