Why ESG training goes beyond simply doing the right thing?

November 29, 2022

An excellent ESG performance is based on a deep understanding of what ESG constitutes. Instilling a common language and understanding is crucial to integrate sustainability in all aspects of corporate and institutional functions. 


However, knowledge gaps and lack of clarity around core sustainability issues are still the main challenges for most organizations. This is why ESG training is key!


Long-term planning and prioritization of initiatives is critical when implementing an ESG strategy. This is the reason why professionals need to be confident in their ability to analyze and integrate ESG factors into their roles. Adding the ever-changing legislation with the new ratings and standards, all the above have brought ESG training at the forefront. This is a topic of growing importance for both the private and the public sector, involving multiple departments, managers, directors and C-suite executives.

Since every organization is different, a tailor-made program is always the best option when you are planning to upskill a group with training that truly addresses your needs.


What are the main benefits of an in-house training?



The training can be focused on the company, and sector specific case studies can be presented and discussed. An in-house training course is developed on particular topics and skills that are essential to a company.


Team building and business culture support:

Employees have the opportunity to collaborate with coworkers and develop stronger relationships. This can result in higher worker morale, as well as increased awareness of each other’s jobs.



An in-house training is more flexible in terms of scheduling. It is not easy to organize training for a group of people who all have their own schedules. An in-house training can engage employees during their regular working hours.



In-house training programs offer better value for money as they minimize travel-related costs without sacrificing training program quality and the ability for participants to enjoy improving their skill set all together.
