Result of Service

UNEP FI’s sustainable finance training services are part of its efforts to fulfill the mission of UNEP FI to "identify, promote, and realise the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practice at all levels of financial institution operations". The primary aim of these services is to raise awareness and to build capacity in sustainable finance amongst UNEP FI Signatories and other financial institutions, as well as relevant stakeholders in governments, NGOs and academia, especially in developing countries and emerging markets. These services are an integral part of the UNEP FI Work Programme which was agreed upon by signatories to the Initiative at their Annual General Meeting in November 2019.

Expected duration

The duration of the contract will be one month long.

Duties and Responsibilities

The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a strategic public-private partnership between UNEP and the global financial sector. UNEP FI works with approximately 200 financial institutions, which are signatories to the UNEP FI Statements of Environmental Commitment, and a range of partners and organisations, to develop and promote linkages between the environment, sustainability and financial performance.

Since 2007, UNEP FI has been offering the “Climate Change: Risks and Opportunities for the Finance Sector” Online Course. The existing course has a long track record, but financial risks associated with climate change are increasing and becoming more apparent. As the understanding among financial institutions of the risks imposed by climate change becomes, in response, more nuanced and sophisticated, UNEP FI has been working on an update to the original climate change course.

The second generation of the online course has been provisionally titled “Climate Change & the TCFD: Risks & Opportunities for the Banking Industry”. The updated course will look at climate-related financial risks and opportunities, including topics such as physical and transition risks, mitigation, adaptation, the shift to a low-carbon, climate resilient economy for financial institutions, and emerging disclosure frameworks.

The course is scheduled to take place from 16 November to 4 December 2020 (over a total of three weeks), UNEP FI requires a Consultant to:

i. Provide a marking of each completed case study exercise per online course student.
ii. Provide mentoring functions during the 3-week duration of the course, in particular by: i) managing, facilitating, guiding, encouraging, and responding to the student discussions, questions, statements and interventions in the course’s discussion boards and also responding to participants’ queries outside the platform during the course; ii) sharing, presumably once per week, with course participants recent media and news articles that pertain to the topic of the course.
