Our core beliefs and most important values

Who we are…

Sustainability.Training is a spin-off of Innovativkonzept GmbH, a Germany based consultancy company that provides services related to environmental and social risk management for investment projects, financial institutions, and banking sectors in developing countries based on the IFC Performance Standards.

Where do we come from…

We have carried out countless E&S due diligence exercises of investment projects, worked as lenders E&S advisor, worked for banks and implemented numerous Environmental and Social Risk Management Systems together with our financial institution clients.

How we do it…

With this track record in hand we now can credibly offer relevant E-Learning courses to financial institutions all under the headline “E-Learning for Sustainable Banking”. Our solutions are based on the most modern E-Learning software and state of the art Learning Management Systems (LMS).

Our philosophy…

We strongly believe that financial institutions worldwide can make a huge difference to society and the environment. And this without losing one single client. On the contrary, giving environmental and social considerations the same importance as financial, legal or technical aspects, can make investments more sustainable and lucrative.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

– Barack Obama –
