SSE Academy supports training on climate reporting for youth

25 August 2023

The UN SSE Academy facilitated a training on climate reporting for youth, which equipped participants with essential skills and knowledge to be able to produce and evaluate climate-related data from capital markets. The training program was organized by the official youth constituency (YOUNGO) of the UN climate agency (UNFCCC).  UN SSE Academy Head, Tiffany Grabski, presented an overview of analyzing climate finance data and drafting reports on climate finance. Her presentation covered where to find climate-related financial data, what climate-related financial data is, and how to interpret and analyze this data. Following her presentation she spent time with the participants to answer questions and provide tools and resources to support their climate-disclosure journeys.  The YOUNGO reporting training program had 2,200 global applicants, with 100 participants from 92 countries selected to participate. The training program consists of four consecutive weekly training sessions, with partners from UN and civil society organizations. The SSE Academy is the UN SSE’s education arm focused on the provision of globally consistent and pragmatic training for market participants on the adoption and implementation of sustainable finance practices. Together with its education partners, the SSE Academy develops certified training programs made available to capital market participants free of charge with the objective of supporting the education and training needs of stock exchanges. By partnering with topic experts and specialists, the SSE Academy’s mission is to support stock exchanges in their efforts to bring their markets up-to-date with pragmatic educational resources on key sustainability-related issues.
