This collaboration will leverage Krÿstähl, a joint venture by GICE&SDGs and Sanshodhan, to provide access to LuxSE’s LGX Academy’s online sustainable finance courses, specifically tailored to suit the intricacies of the Indian market.
Established in 2018, Krÿstähl provides training, advisory, and certification services to a wide array of public and private organisations in India and beyond. This partnership will encompass the LGX Academy’s bi-annual courses on the fundamentals of sustainable finance, debt products and best market practices.
Additionally, it will offer tailored courses designed to cater to the specific needs of various sectors and geographies.
Laetitia Hamon, LuxSE’s head of sustainable finance, noted that the aim of this venture is to foster sustainable finance developments by “enabling capital market participants in India to increase their knowledge of sustainable debt products and internationally recognised standards for such issuances.”
Shalini Sharma, the director at Krÿstähl, shared her enthusiasm about the collaboration, emphasising recent policy changes in India that have generated opportunities for businesses and investors to exploit green incentives. She expects that “collaborating with the LGX Academy will open up new avenues to gear up the sustainable finance ecosystem in India.”
Apart from spearheading sustainable finance education, Krÿstähl also assists organisations with ESG impact assessment, prepares them for the carbon market and helps create effective action plans to address environmental and sustainability challenges.
In keeping with LuxSE’s mission to assist emerging markets in their transition towards sustainability, the LGX Academy offers custom courses to help local market participants and public entities establish sustainable bond markets in several emerging economies, including Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Cabo Verde.
