Why do we need a sustainable and ethical management?

Companies and organizations have to face two big challenges today. One is digitalization and the second is sustainability. Not only ideological reasons require but also economic reasons urge for action. The political environment and the market require the management of social and environmental impact as well as the economic one.

Since the EU has put the new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) directive into effect, large companies are already required by law to report their impact on society. New audiences demand that companies be sustainable and ethical; investors increasingly value responsible companies and finally the company itself can obtain several benefits from sustainable management. Moreover, the Green New Deal and the Circular Action Plan of the EU will not only shape Europe’s future but many other countries’ as well.

Besides, financial markets are changing and starting to value sustainable and ethical investments. Investments amounts into sustainable products experience constant increases and just recently most important financial data bases offer data on so called Environmental Social Governance (ESG). More and more, we need to report and assess our social economic impact and be able to manage it.

The course is designed to transmit the knowledge, tools and skills necessary to face this change and to prepare the organization to begin its path towards sustainability.


Objectives and results

The Objectives of the course is to provide knowledge about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental Social Governance (ESG). Above all, the course encompasses different ways of managing sustainability for both internal improvements and external improvements. The main objective is to transfer the fundamental knowledge into tangible practical projects.

You will learn about measuring and communicating about sustainability. The most current systems will be known, such as the Global Reporting Initiative, ISO26000, Triple Bottom Line, UN Global Compact and the economy of the common good.

After knowing different certifications and audits, a case of Green Washing can be distinguished from truly sustainable and ethical cases. In this way you also learn to be a genuinely sustainable and ethical organization.

As a result of all this work, a practical final project is designed to meet the real needs of the company.
