On 11th November ifs Malta organised an ESG seminar aimed at “taking a pulse check of the Maltese economy on its ESG journey”. This year’s seminar continued to build on the one held in 2021, where the focus was also on the importance of a sustainable future.

Ms Mifsud said that “through constant research and observation of our society, ifs Malta recognizes the needs of organisations in a multicultural society.” She also stressed that one of the school’s main aims “is to raise awareness and provide suitable education which will help prepare a workforce who is able to face current and future challenges.”

ifs Malta is an independent licensed school in Malta.  Its principal mission is to actively support banking and finance practitioners and students through the provision of related academic qualifications and experiential training.

Speaking of this year’s event, Ms Mifsud made reference to the speakers who mentioned that “adopting green business models and being aware of what is socially right and wrong is not going to happen overnight, but raising awareness is a start.”

“If all organisations take the necessary steps, one day we will be able to leave this world a better place,” she concluded.
