Sustainable Investment Professional Certification (SIPC)

The world of investing is seeing a seismic, generational shift. A new breed of investor has emerged – one who’s looking to generate returns that go beyond financial gain.

Sustainable investing, impact investing – however you define it – is investing that takes environmental and social considerations into account, as well as financial goals. It’s a rapidly evolving area of expertise, requiring finance and corporate professionals to have a new set of investment and risk management skills.

That’s where the SIPC comes in. As the field of sustainable investing quickly evolves, the SIPC has been updated to not only keep pace but to place our certified professionals well ahead of the game.

The John Molson School of Business in cooperation with the Finance and Sustainability Initiative (FSI) Montreal created the SIPC program.

The Sustainable Investment Professional Certification (SIPC) is made up of three online courses. Each consists of readings, training sessions and quizzes or case-study assignments. They’re designed to provide you with context and help you understand concepts of environmental, social, financial and ethical sustainability in real-world settings.
