Under a cooperation agreement, ADFIAP and Globale Umwelt-Technologien GmbH Etech Germany will jointly organize programs under the theme of sustainable finance for ADFIAP member-DFIs and like-minded financial institutions.
Two events are initially being planned – an international conference on the greening of the financial sector and an online certification program for bankers in sustainable development. The conference is slated to be held in Karlsruhe, Germany on September 2010 while the online course will be launched shortly.
The green events are part and parcel of ADFIAP’s sustainable development mission that is aimed at providing its members with the opportunity to learn international best practices on green finance as well as to explore business models in the area of sustainable development.
