We are sincerely grateful for our success in 2018. The corporate community is awake to the many opportunities for a better world by engaging in sustainable practices. The Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE) is pleased to be part of this inevitable shift!
We are thankful for the many newly trained sustainability (CSR) practitioners certified with our CSR-P designation. We held trainings with participants from five continents and 30 countries. The networks and friendships built among energy companies, food producers, major retailers and emerging entrepreneurs are invaluable.
We celebrate the growth of our Sustainability Academy. Under Nikos Avlonas’ leadership, it led to his being named Corporate Responsibility Impact Practitioner of the Year for 2018 by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
We are proud of our 3rd annual research, Sustainability (ESG) Reporting Trends: North America 2018. Our team found positive connections between Sustainability Reporting and financial performance among the Fortune 500 and other top companies in North America.
We welcome our new affiliates around the world, growing our family, training new practitioners and helping companies reach their potential. They are key to our vision of a sustainable future.
As we look to the future, we hope to build on our Sustainable Development Goals Champions campaign. In support of SDG Goal 4 for Quality Education, we entered a UN Partnership to increase awareness and promote education among professionals, corporations and entrepreneurs on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Thank you to all our friends, colleagues, practitioners, to those of you who read our newsletters, follow our social media and refer us throughout your networks. We perform at our best because of your insights, endorsements and support.
Happy Holidays from our CSE Family to yours!
