Learners Share Their “RISE Green Economy” Experience!

There is not enough information out there which is when I stumbled upon the program and the BCG course stood out because the coverage is quite extensive for a crash course. I also got government funding which was a win-win.

Dadina Wong
Finance Project Manager

I work in the finance sector and lend to Indonesian SMEs. So it intrigued me on how I can help them with carbon tax, circularity and other emerging topics. Hence, I wanted to join BCG’s course to learn more about climate change and carbon accounting.

Indah Sari
SME Lending

I came with an open mind and a willingness to learn, and I have learnt so much during this BCG course. Climate change is incredibly important and being able to do something is much better than sitting around and waiting for something to happen.

Jin Kiat
Senior Vice President

The most exciting part was learners coming together from different organizations to learn about upcoming changes in the sustainability field…so sign up! You won’t regret it.
