”Having joined IASE a few months ago I am delighted to have completed my first IASE designation. I consider it as a stepping-stone in achieving more @iase designations and progressing in the #ESG field. This will allow me to respond to the ESG knowledge needs of professionals, especially in the financial sector, and to be at the forefront of a new certification model, both in terms of content and processes, guaranteeing me a first class upskill to address the reality of our environment with a complete vision of sustainable development.”
”In my professional career I have always sought to increase my training to enable me to improve my employability and to deploy all that knowledge in the development of my professional functions. Now, given the new world of sustainability and its opportunities, it is urgent to train and update oneself, and I believe that this IASE certification will help me in the commitment I have always had with my organisation and with myself. As professionals, we have the responsibility to be updated and keep ourselves at the forefront of knowledge in order to accompany our organisations in their evolutions. With this IASE certification, and faced with the new world of Sustainability, I consider that I have taken on the challenge of training in the first person, and becoming a pioneer in my organisation will have a positive impact on BBVA.”
