CSR Essentials training: Getting smart on Corporate Social Responsibility

Companies have the power to change the world. In a society where sustainability is one of our biggest challenges, it is important that business step up and address their social and environmental impact. Over the years, we’ve seen this happen more and more. However, for many managers, employees, marketeers, consultants and senior managers, the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is still abstract. The CSR Essentials training provides insight into the meaning of CSR, supported by a theoretical framework and by practical examples, and explores a variety of topics and challenges related to the implementation of CSR.

Something for you?

CSR Essentials is for (young) professionals who are passionate about making a positive impact (just like us!), and want to learn more about how to get started with CSR in your organization. This is the perfect training if you:

  • Want to get smart on the basics of sustainability and CSR
  • Are a manager or employee of a company that is not yet very active on CSR and you want to drive the change
  • Are working at a company that’s already doing a lot on CSR and you want to get in on the action!

At the end of the day…

  • You walk out with a solid grasp of what CSR entails: the basics, trends & developments, a quick scan of the most important CSR standards and inspiring case studies;
  • You know what matters for your organization: what are the relevant issues, stakeholders – and how do you activate them?
  • You’re ready to get started tomorrow: you’ve got all the tools to create your own action plan!
