Climate Safe Lending Launches Fellowship for Banking Professionals

Climate Safe Lending Network
Thursday, June 10, 2021

The Climate Safe Lending Network in partnership with the Finance Innovation Lab are pleased to announce that applications for the Climate Safe Lending Fellowship are now open. The Climate Safe Lending Fellowship is a six-month leadership program for banking professionals who are advancing the climate agenda within their institutions. Right now, banks are faced with the enormous opportunity and urgent challenge of financing a just transition to a net-zero carbon future. This requires leadership from within to transform strategy, operations and culture in service of a climate safe world. The Climate Safe Lending Fellowship provides structured support for climate advocates inside banks to build their knowledge, confidence and skills to lead this transformation. The Fellowship program is for banking professionals committed to embedding climate action at the heart of their institutions - regardless of role, function or seniority - and whether working to accelerate climate action through their day job or side-of-desk. Selected Fellows will journey together in a pre-competitive, collaborative cohort between October 2021 - March 2022. They will leave the program more confident and grounded, and will have gained new insights and practical tools to accelerate organizational transformation. Fellows will also benefit from peer-coaching and tailored support, and will build a trusted network of stakeholders across and beyond banking.
