In today’s turbulent economic environment, sustainability thinking represents a major way that individuals and companies can position themselves to thrive. Strategic thinking about corporate sustainability and social impacts can lead to short and long term competitive advantage. Many sustainable business practices fall short because they only focus on the environment and fail to recognize all three aspects of sustainability. By taking a whole-systems approach to your business and its impacts you can help unlock innovation and creativity while focusing on all parts of the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit.
Corporate sustainability is not a trend- it is here to stay. Learn how to minimize environmental impact, extract profit from the increasing prevalence of "green" products and services, and improve your stakeholder relationships inside and outside of your firm. This corporate sustainability course will allow you to optimally position yourself and your organization to navigate risks and pursue rewards while employing sustainable business practices.
