Training Programme for Banks and Financial Institutions: Environment & Social Risk Management | Centre for Science and Environment


Training Programme for Banks and Financial Institutions: Environment & Social Risk Management

Indian banks and financial institutions are considered the pillars of economic growth. They have immense potential to influence environmental sustainability and bridge the gaps between development and environmental degradation through their project financing. However, in recent years, this sector has faced difficult times due to growing numbers of Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) or bad loans. One of the factors responsible for this is inadequate Environment and Social (E&S) risks management.

Potential E&S risks, if not managed at the early stages of project financing, may result in disruption, delay or stoppage of a project due to people’s protests, environmental bottlenecks and judicial intervention. This puts the investment at risk, and can severely damage the reputation of banks.

CSE’s Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute invites applications for its 2-days training programme focusing on E&S risks management. The programme will help its participants understand the various E&S risks associated with commercial lending, and will guide the lenders in developing an effective internal E&S policy framework.

What will the training programme teach:

  1. Issues and challenges in adopting an E&S risks management framework

  2. Learning from case studies

  3. Applicable environmental and social policies for project lending

  4. How global and multilateral banks are managing E&S risks

  5. Approach and framework for potential E&S risks identification in large infrastructure projects and SMEs

  6. Roadmaps for mainstreaming E&S risks in project financing

Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI) is a learning, training and innovation centre that is designed to find solutions to some of the most pressing problems of environment and development faced by countries of the Global South. AAETI is an initiative of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), one of India’s front-ranking independent public research, communication and advocacy institutions.
