The Environmental Sustainability Skills for Managers course aims to provide supervisors and
managers with a strategic and operational overview of environmental sustainability as it affects their specific industry and work activities.

Climate change and nature collapse are existential crises. Ignoring them will not make them go away. Understanding sustainability is no longer a nice-to-have, but rather a requirement to survive. Your business will either learn to adapt and thrive or collapse. Adapting businesses and industries to meet this challenge requires new ways of working and significant upskilling.

The course includes:

  • an understanding of the strategic opportunities and threats caused by a changing environment
  • the importance of resource efficiency and circularity
  • the impact of sustainability across the value chain
  • the impacts of pollution, prevention, control and environmental legislation in organisations
  • how employees support sustainability

Really satisfied with the course and it has achieved the overall objective for me in terms of providing Sustainability Information to a team of individuals that don't have any formal background in Environmental or Sustainability.
