About the course

Sustainable development and corporate social responsibility impact your business; how is your company shaping the market? And why is sustainability a strategic goal for business?

Sustainable actions of a company start with engaged leaders who are aware of the resources needed. Sustainability is a competitive advantage socially, environmentally, and economically more now than ever before, and it is an important matter for senior executives and leaders in order to responsibly lead the company into the future while valuing company transparency and reputation. A sustainable innovation culture requires top management commitment and ambition to make a difference. Are you, as a leader, ready and prepared?

The Strategic Sustainability for Business program focuses on strengthening the link between sustainability and business strategy within the business environment. Leaders need to take action and manage the value chain of their business, ensuring that sustainability and business strategy are mutually complementary.

The program is a comprehensive introduction to sustainability strategy development and implementation within the business. During the program, you will increase your understanding of key strategic themes for future success through sustainability. You will network with experienced leaders and experts via inspiring group discussions and reflections, lectures, and business presentations.
