Overview

ESG for Commercial Lenders Course Overview

This ESG for Commercial Lenders Course looks at how ESG factors may influence risk assessments and credit decisions for private, small and middle-market commercial lenders. Environmental, social, and governance factors can affect a company’s ability to service debt obligations but are often either overlooked or misinterpreted. Further, many financial institutions face a disconnect between actions at the individual borrower level and the lender’s own ESG profile, including how to manage messaging to stakeholders. This course ensures that credit professionals will be equipped to understand the impact that sustainability practices, or a lack thereof, can have on a company’s risk profile and, ultimately, on a firm’s disclosure practices.

ESG for Commercial Lenders looks at topics like how climate risks may affect business operations as well as its physical collateral, and how changes to a borrower’s reputation can impact its supply chain and its financial results. The course includes an interactive case study where we will have the opportunity to analyze a borrowing client and conduct downside sensitivity analysis in Excel using an ESG lens.
