Corporations are under increasing scrutiny for their contributions to society and the environment. Against this backdrop, a business strategy that considers its environmental impact is vital. There is increased demand for corporate leaders with the ability to drive sustainability and shift the traditional methods of value creation towards the concept of the triple bottom line.

The Oxford Leading Sustainable Corporations Program takes an executive-level perspective on business sustainability, looking beyond traditional views of measuring and reporting on performance, to integrate environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) factors into your business practice. With a focus on corporate sustainability leadership, this Program aims to equip leaders with the essential skills to address this critical business need.

This Oxford Leading Sustainable Corporations Program is certified by the United Kingdom CPD Certification Service, and may be applicable to individuals who are members of, or are associated with, UK-based professional bodies. The Program has an estimated 60 hours of learning.
