In our rapidly changing global ecosystem, companies are being held to increasingly demanding environmental and social standards. Executives need to understand how these factors impact their business in order to build sustainable companies that meet the needs of society while delivering economic returns to shareholders and stakeholders.

This course is designed to assist executives in developing the knowledge, skills and perspective they need to understand and address these environmental and social challenges for their company. Through a combination of lecture, discussion and group exercises, participants will better understand how to reduce risk, create competitive advantage and develop innovative services, products and processes in a sustainable way that builds value for society and protects the planet. Participants will also gain exposure to and experience in translating corporate performance on sustainability into financial performance.
