Incorporating sustainable business practices impacts every facet of a firm's operations—from manufacturing to logistics to service and everything in between. And while new regulatory and compliance issues may seem overwhelming or restrictive, leading executives and board members recognize that financial success and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. We are at an inflection point for the adoption of sustainable products, services and operations, but not all leaders have the tools to take advantage of this opportunity.
We provide programs that help business leaders engage in proactive and innovative mainstreaming of sustainability, resulting in competitive advantage and resilience for their companies, and a positive impact for society.
The multiple economic, geopolitical, environmental, and social challenges that we are currently facing means that companies need to rethink their relationship with society, their purpose, their strategy, and their business model. This program aims to help managers play an active role in the transition towards a low-carbon, biodiversity-friendly, circular and inclusive economy, which respects the limits of our planet and people. This is not only an imperative. It is an opportunity for organizations to re-invent new business models and to develop strong competitive drivers in the short, medium, and long term.
