ESG and Islamic Finance: Implications for Boards and Corporate Governance


Registration Closed

Program Overview

As both ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investment and Islamic finance thrive and expand, there is increasing convergence between the two. Global investors increasingly see Islamic finance as part of the broader ESG community, and Islamic finance stakeholders are increasingly embracing global ESG considerations.

The convergence creates both opportunities and challenges for institutions, boards, and corporate governance. Opportunities are especially prevalent in Asia, where ESG is increasingly embraced and Islamic capital markets are well-developed.

Participants will emerge from this program with a deeper understanding of:

  • ESG and Islamic finance: key commonalities and contrasts;
  • Cross-sector opportunities: what ESG and Islamic finance can learn from each other;
  • Opportunities and challenges for institutions and boards; and
  • Corporate governance challenges and risk management.

By the end of the program, participants will return to their institutions better prepared to:

    • Identify and pursue opportunities for ESG and Islamic finance through business growth and capital markets;
    • Position their organizations to avail of the convergence of ESG and Islamic finance via regional and the associated capital flows;
    • Recognize the challenges and risks associated with ESG and Islamic finance at the institutional and board levels; and
    • Design and implement corporate governance strategies to avail of the opportunities and manage the risks.
