Who should attend

This programme is designed for business professionals, marketers at all levels of seniority, business owners, brand managers, product managers, CEOs and individuals concerned with leading the way businesses respond to sustainability challenges and are keen to drive and effect real change.

About the course

Businesses have a significant role to play when it comes to shaping a better world for society, the environment and responsible, sustainable business. A key component to lasting success is ensuring that sustainability is embedded within business strategy – part of planning, budgeting, resourcing and day to day operations. The CIM Sustainable Transformation 4-day Programme provides a roadmap for how businesses can rethink what ‘success’ means, and practically build a meaningful, innovative and responsible organisation. We’ll explore examples from companies from all over the world who are successfully driving sustainability. We’ll also hear from a range of experts who are setting the agenda for sustainable transformation within organisations.

This programme provides an opportunity to consider the fundamental aspects of business transformation through a sustainable and responsible lens. It will equip you to take the lead in developing transformational sustainable and responsible business and marketing strategies for your organisation. Additionally, the programme will introduce you to key aspects of climate science and carbon literacy and provide a unique opportunity to gain Carbon Literacy Certification from The Carbon Literacy Trust.

The programme consists of eight modules delivered in two parts. Each part is two days in duration:

Part 1

  1. Introduction to the sustainable business landscape
  2. Develop an authentic sustainable business narrative
  3. Strategic analysis through a sustainability lens
  4. Using sustainable reporting to inform and steer action

Part 2

  1. The role key stakeholders play in driving sustainability
  2. Managing supply chains to optimise sustainability
  3. Authentic integration of sustainability into comms strategy
  4. How sustainability is driving innovation

We are launching the CIM Sustainable Transformation Programme at the introductory price of £2,250 (non-members).
