Our global challenges like climate change, social inequality and economic development mean that sustainability is more than a buzzword: The concept is being operationalized by companies, NGOs and policy makers. On a policy level, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris climate agreement and the Green New Deal are setting the stage, on a business level, standards like Environmental Social Governance (ESG) reporting or ecovadis, supply chain integrity and voluntary certification as well as diversity crucial to long-term economic success.

How are companies innovating towards more sustainability today? What are the criteria, the success factors and the strategic approaches to tackle consumer, policy, employee and societal demand for more sustainability?

In this course, we will look at current sustainability frameworks, sustainable companies and sustainable innovation. The participants will get to know and to apply collaborative online tools to evaluate existing company sustainability approaches and to create their own business-related sustainability strategies.

The course will include at least two executives as guest speakers who will evaluate the created strategies and provide insights into their own approaches.
