Unique e-learning program prepares business leaders to oversee climate risk and create sustainable growth strategies for their companies

- Diligent Corporation, the global leader in SaaS governance, risk and compliance (GRC) today announces the launch of Diligent Climate Leadership, the first phase in the Diligent ESG Leadership Certification program, designed to help corporate directors and C-level executives be better equipped to oversee climate risk and strategy for their companies.

Created in collaboration with industry experts, the program is available as a self-paced e-learning experience. The program includes six courses with video panel sessions featuring subject matter and industry experts, curated readings, interactive exercises, and online networking among participants.

“With all the pressure corporate leaders are feeling to set and enforce ESG goals, we are helping our global network of directors and executives be better prepared to lead on ESG risk and strategy,” said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. “Diligent Climate Leadership is the first step in our program to address the full scope of ESG issues and help leaders build successful, equitable and sustainable organizations.”

Glass Lewis, long-time partners with Diligent, is collaborating on the curriculum and course design. “We are excited to see Diligent bring this new offering to the market,” said Eric Shostal, SVP Research and Engagement. “This program fills a need from corporate directors and executives to become more fluent on climate risk issues and climate strategy. We look forward to advancing the DCLC program objectives by contributing Glass Lewis’ expertise on matters relating to climate risk governance and oversight.”

The courses can be completed in six weeks, and participants have up to six months to complete all coursework. To receive certification, participants also attend a closing event, either in-person or virtually, which includes a briefing by regulators and other industry experts. Events will take place across New York, Austin and London.

The program is restricted to current board members and C-suite level executives and starts February 1, 2022. The deadline to sign up for the first cohort is January 14, 2022. The registration fee is $3,500 per person.
