About the initiative
The IIC has been championing environmental and social risk management training for financial intermediaries in Latin America and the Caribbean for more than 16 years. Since 2010, through its environmental, social and governance (SEG) initiative, the IIC has also been providing capacity building in the area of corporate governance for family businesses in the region. In 2015, the IIC brought its environmental and social risk management and its corporate governance training under the same umbrella of the Sustainability Week Initiative.
The 2017 Sustainability Week will be held in Cartagena, Colombia, on April 24-28. During the first three days of the week, the IIC will deliver this year’s training on Environmental and Social Management for the Financial Sector. During the last two days of the week, the IIC will conduct its Corporate Governance Symposium. Combining theory, case studies, and group dynamics, these workshops will offer a clear understanding about environmental and social sustainability issues and the steps to achieve effective governance.
