After a considerable amount of hard work and support from a small group of volunteers, we are delighted to be launching our new Climate Risk and Sustainability course in the spring of 2022.
The eight-week course will be delivered through the Virtual Learning Environment and is available to all members. We expect the commitment to be around eight to 10 hours a week, but this will vary between individuals. You can complete it at your own pace, and there will be opportunities to come together virtually to discuss key issues and enhance your learning.
The first course will begin on 9 March 2022 and will cost £550, with a reduced rate of £330. The course is designed to be of value to a wide range of individuals, beginning with foundation modules (1-5) covering basic knowledge and concepts, and followed by a set of application modules (6-9) that are directly relevant to the actuarial community. The modules are:
- Evidence of man-made climate change and its physical and transitional impacts
- UN, NGOs, other stakeholders and sustainability
- TCFD and financial regulation
- Economics and sustainability
- Intergenerational issues
- Strategy and risk management
- Climate models/modelling
- Reporting and communication
- Closing workshop.
