“Leading Sustainability Transitions is designed to address significant knowledge and skill gaps among leading executives, business, and other professionals regarding the role, impact and importance of addressing critical sustainability challenges. While there is a focus on the familiar environmental concerns, the course also focuses on how social issues are integral to necessary and innovative business decisions. In practice this can impact many crucial activities, for example, the role of the UN SDGs and the importance of sustainable supply chains, managing diversity, and developing purpose-led businesses.”
