Sustainability Essentials: Build your own action plan

Companies and organizations have the power to the change the world. In a society where sustainability is one of our biggest challenges, it is important for organizations – and professionals – to step up and take a role in making societal and environmental impact. More than ever, consumers, business partners and other stakeholders expect organizations to make sustainability part of their business case. However, for many employees, marketeers, and (senior) managers, integrating sustainability in their work remains an abstract concept.

In this full-day Sustainability Essentials training, you learn from practical examples of companies and organizations that successfully moved towards more innovation on sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in their work. There will be a special presentation of B Lab on how the B Corp movement drives sustainability worldwide. Next, you will put theory to action and work on a variety topics and challenges that are relevant for you, and turn this into a plan for positive impact. At the end of this day you’re ready to start tomorrow.

Something for you?

This one-day training is for the innovators, change makers and ambitious enthusiasts who want to make a positive impact and are eager to drive (more) sustainable change with their organization or company, whether they are in a management function or not.
