We are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) to offer market-leading sustainability education to the global finance sector


Founded by former colleagues of CISL, WeESG provides market leading sustainable finance training and advisory services for the global finance sector. Our mission is to empower the global finance sector to successfully embrace sustainable finance. This includes providing direct support to inform and prepare the workforce of banks, investors, insurers, and their regulators, as well as corporates dependent on the new ‘rules’ of finance, for the transformative changes faced.


For over three decades, CISL has drawn upon leading academics, practitioners and innovators to help inform business strategy and inspire action through education. Through these partnerships they aim to continue inspiring global action towards sustainability leadership, drawing on innovative, engaging, and accessible new developments in the education landscape.

By combining CISL’s existing expertise in sustainability leadership change, with WeESG’s programmes on skills development in sustainable finance, this partnership will help to accelerate sustainable finance learning across all levels of the finance sector. It offers all our clients a new one-stop-shop for their entire sustainable finance training needs, from graduates through to Boards.
