Course Launch

PRI Academy launches new release of 3 ESG online training courses.

The PRI Academy is pleased to announce it is releasing a new version of its 3 online environmental, social and governance (ESG) online training courses. The Academy provides practical online education for busy professionals needing to understand how ESG issues impact company performance, shareholder value and investment decision making.

The PRI Academy courses are increasingly being valued by professionals wanting to make better informed financial decisions. The Academy has now delivered online training to financial professionals across more than 200 organisations in over 40 countries.


We have spent months reviewing and revising our courses to make sure they all well supported by practical examples and real world data to enhance the online learning experience.

The Academy has also taken the opportunity to refresh the appearance of the course material by incorporating the attractive blue and white PRI theme throughout the course material. This helps to provide students with a stimulating online studying environment, whilst retaining the highly interactive and engaging feel of the previous versions of the courses.

Structured learning programmes, milestone progress monitoring and end of course multiple choice assessments are all managed in-house by the Academy support team, via its dedicated online learning platform.


The PRI Academy courses are all designed to instill a sound knowledge of ESG considerations while making the best use of participants’ time.

RI Fundamentals: A short foundation course with an interactive approach and step by step introduction to the ESG concepts that underpin and define responsible investment.

RI Essentials: An intermediate course, which examines responsible investment from the first ESG principles through to their integration, along with practical investment decision making.

Enhanced Financial Analysis: An advanced training course, which takes a detailed journey through the hands on application and impact of ESG data on fundamental investment analysis.

The CFA Institute has approved the RI Essentials and Enhanced Financial Analysis courses for CE credit. If students are members of the CFA Institute, CE credit for participation in these courses will be automatically recorded in their CE diaries.
