But do you understand how decarbonization actually works, particularly in an investment portfolio? Do you know the difference between Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions? And what is the role of governments and investors in all this?

Online training course

Help is now at hand with an educational module produced by Robeco: The Essentials of Climate Investing. An online training program comprising eight chapters, it explains the basics of global warming, the challenges we face, and some of the solutions available.

To enhance the learning experience, the module includes charts, a video, case studies, and a summary of the main points. Each chapter takes around 15 minutes to read. At the end there is a test, which if completed successfully can count as two hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

It is the fourth in our series, following the Essentials of Sustainable Investing, the Essentials of Factor Investing, and the Essentials of the Sustainable Development Goals. Financial professionals around the world have taken these courses and benefited from the CPD certificates they earned.

So, if you want to boost your knowledge, we recommend that you complete this Essentials course, take the test, and prepare yourself for the future.
