Course Overview 

Sustainability is a noisy subject. Companies are struggling to know where to begin, what frameworks they might use? What’s important in their sector and to their stakeholders? It is no longer just a nice to have, but a must have in this competitive business landscape. Leaders are now accountable for financial, social, and environmental responsibilities. In the light of all these changes, leaders need to weigh up all factors in creating a resilient business model.
