Sustainable Investment Professional Certification Program

With investors increasingly requiring that their investments generate positive financial returns, while also creating positive environmental and social impact, this rapidly evolving area of expertise requires a new set of investment and risk management skills.

The SIPC program was created by the John Molson School of Business in cooperation with the Finance and Sustainability Initiative (FSI) Montreal in response to the growing interest in sustainable investment approaches.
