As we just celebrated Thanksgiving in the United States, it was a time for us at CSE to reflect and be grateful for the successful year we’ve had so far in 2021. We achieved a fast digital transformation to be able to support the continuous education of C-suite executives around the world for FORTUNE500 organizations, large multinationals and SMEs’ in a period of unprecedented difficulty for society and business, respecting the health and well-being of our programs participants.
This was once again a year in which we saw corporations expressing interest and willingness to be part of a more sustainable world. The Center for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE) is pleased to help organizations on their sustainability ESG journey.
The number of trained sustainability (ESG) practitioners certified with our Sustainability ESG designation is a testament of their loyalty. We held 16 programs in 2021, and over 1,000 Sustainability Executives and Managers joined us. For example, we tackled the hard sustainability issues related to climate leadership, climate related regulations, ESG challenges, CFOs’ and Investors’ concerns, sector-based business models, supply-chain resilience, adaptation strategies, science-based targets. Furthermore, we presented solutions and actionable tools to help corporations embed sustainability (ESG) into the core of their business strategy and recovery.
