About This Course

This course explains the E&S related requirements of KfW when providing a loan to a financial institution client.

It starts by explaining why at all international development banks (including KfW) do increasingly attach importance to the subject of “E&S risk management” in financial institutions and how this is best being achieved. Further, the different requirements are explained in detail with a particular focus on implementation challenges and good practices.

The course further explains the impact that these requirements can have on the business of a financial institution, in particular with regard to its clients, and also provides a quick explanation of “why this could make sense” and is not just another bureaucratic hurdle imposed by KfW.
