This programme will provide knowledge and excellent practice from world-leading organisations on how to design a sustainability strategy and how to prepare a sustainability report.

Corporations now change their business models from results-driven to purpose-driven and this creates a need for a concrete, thorough and robust sustainability strategy to contribute to global challenges such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
