This course provides knowledge, concepts and tools for developing a perfect plan for sustainability and success! This hands-on approach to sustainability will allow attendees to develop strategies, identify and assess risks and opportunities, undertake decision-making methods towards successfully achieving sustainability. The mission is to focus on putting sustainability into action in the organizational setting. The first day will address the formation of polices, roles and responsibilities and systems of accountability for sustainability. The second day will entail designing a framework and creating a roadmap. On the last day we will go over sustainability-related metrics and methods for making decisions regarding related activities.
Connecting the dots! It is not enough to merely manage environmental, social and economic impacts independently. To effectively realize the greater goal of sustainability, plans and actions need to capture connections between environmental, social and economic performance as a whole. Plans and actions additionally need to capture the connections of an organization’s performance, as well as the influence of state of local, regional and global ecosystems, communities and economies.
