The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, organizes several webinars on the importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in investment, within the framework of the European Sustainable Development Week, a European-wide initiative to stimulate and make visible activities, projects and events that promote sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

Edufinet participates in this event with three webinars on ESG factors, one for each factor, and with the goal of raising awareness on the importance of ESG criteria in the process of study, analysis and selection of securities in an investment portfolio. The webinars will be streamed on Edufinet’s YouTube channel.

 

The first webinar will take place this Monday, 20 September, and will be devoted to environmental criteria. The second one, on Wednesday 22 September, will focus on social criteria, and finally, on Friday 24 September the webinar will deal with governance criteria. The webinars will be given by members of the Edufinet team and will have the participation of Cifal Malaga.

 

Additionally, on Thursday 21 September, Unicaja Banco’s Head of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility, José María López, will give an online talk on circular economy. This event has been organized together with the Almeria Association of Young Business Owners (Asociación de Jóvenes Empresarios, AJE).

 

The European Sustainable Development Week is a European-wide initiative to stimulate and make visible activities, projects and events that promote sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It will take place this year from 18 September – 08 October, with the core of the Week taking place 20 September – 26 September.

 

 

Pioneering programme in Spain

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, is one of the first financial education projects launched in Spain, and its job in the promotion of financial literacy has been recognized with several awards. It was launched in late 2007, with an Internet portal for the general public, although its development began in 2005. Currently, more than ten business organizations and institutions and 16 universities collaborate with the project.

 

In the exercise of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the commitment to society of both Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Edufinet has been offering several online resources to keep in contact with citizens.

 

Its website (https://www.edufinet.com) has registered more than nine million visits from nearly 180 countries. It also features two portals with specific content: one for young people (Edufinext) and one for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp). The website includes other sections such as Edufiblog, EdufiAcademics, EdufiTech and a videogame. The Edufinet Project also has a YouTube channel and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

 

Edufinet has a collaboration agreement with Cifal Malaga, the International Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders, promoted by the UN with the goal of developing training activities on financial literacy, mainly, and also on the UN 2030 Agenda Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
