Affordable, online education and coaching to transform society and the environment
Having identified an existing gap in Sustainability education globally, the Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE) wants to create a strong Sustainability culture by empowering professionals, entrepreneurs and graduates and offers practical and up to date education in this important field.
Its new global initiative, the Sustainability Academy, aims to provide affordable, specialized online education and coaching on the issues of Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility.With more than 5.000 learners already in 30 countries, the Academy aspires to reach 100,000 professionals by 2020! The Sustainability Academy offers the Online Diploma on Corporate Sustainability, and a series of specialized programs on Sustainability Reporting, Carbon Reduction Strategy and ESG Performance for Investors. There are also special In-house Programs for organizations, who recognize that investing in their human capital through education is the most important determinant for growth and excellence in Sustainability. To confirm this claim, recent research has demonstrated that organizations with a strong learning culture can outperform their peers*.
The field of Sustainability (CSR) has risen substantially in the last few years as more and more organizations realize the social, economic, and environmental impacts of their actions and take action to integrate sustainable initiatives into their core strategies. The responsibility for planning and implementing effective sustainability Action Plans falls into the hands of professionals, who are required to have advanced skills, knowledge and experience. The growing importance of this role has thus led to a rising need for specialized, advanced education in this field.
The Sustainability Academy offers the following specialized Certified Online Programs:
- Online Diploma on Corporate Sustainability
- Online Certificate on Sustainability (CSR) Reporting
- Online Certificate on Carbon Reduction Strategy
- Online Certificate on ESG performance for Investors and Sustainability Professionals
