Leading organizations are becoming more aware of compliance challenges, regulations in sustainability, and opportunities afforded by public interest in climate change, environmental issues, sustainability, and “green practices.” This creates a need for educated professionals to steer their organizations in the direction of sustainable practices that make sense for their business models and goals.
This certificate program provides an overview of environmental sustainability concepts and how to apply them in a business context. Learn the core principles behind environmental sustainability; explore the “business case” for sustainability; learn strategies for measuring sustainable practices.
