1 - Introduction to Sustainability
A detailed overview of the global themes and issues that put sustainability into context. Most of the attention in business is focused on the environmental subjects such as Net Zero, low carbon projects, and green recovery. But sustainability is much more than this. This lesson looks at some of the key themes in sustainability that affect businesses.
2 - Three Pillars of Sustainability
In this lesson you will explore the three areas of sustainability: Environmental, Social and Governance/Economic (commonly referred to as ESG). We unpack each of these pillars in depth and what they mean to your business and how you can integrate the “triple bottom line” into your planning.
3 - Making the Business Case
Why is sustainability important to business? This lesson takes a practical approach to making the business case. We all want to do the right thing, but we also have to understand the benefits as well as the costs to the bottom line in our businesses whilst at the same time also accounting for people and planet.
