Ibec Academy Global & Competent Boards partner to launch first global ESG and Climate Education programme

August 25, 2022

Ibec, the group that represents Irish business, has announced the launch of its first international Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) certification programme designed for board directors and senior business professionals. The programme reflects the growing understanding amongst business that having a clear ESG strategy in place is mission critical for the long-term success of an organisation and its growth.

The ESG Competent Boards™ Certificate and Designation (GCB.D) programme is delivered in Europe by Ibec Academy Global, in partnership with Competent Boards, the original and world-leading provider of online environment, social, governance (ESG) and climate education programmes. This International programme is made up of over 150 of the world’s C-suite executives, investors and other experts, making up the faculty who deliver the programmes, which means the quality of the learning is central to our partnership and the value of this programme.

Jackie King, Ibec’s Executive Director of International Business said: “Over the last number of years there has been a growing movement among Ibec members, and indeed business globally, to consider the impact of their operations, not just in terms of maximising returns but in generating returns in a way which balances economic, environmental, social and governance goals. Through the ESG Competent Boards Programme participants will gain the ESG mindset leaders of today need to adapt, transform, and pivot to a new global reality.” 

The 12-week programme allows access to carefully curated reading lists, original case studies and thought-provoking questions to help you create value, enhance resilience, and establish good governance. On completion participants receive the Global ESG Boards Certificate and Designation (GCB.D).
