Develop your sustainability plan for lasting change

Are you looking at transforming your organization towards a more sustainable business model? How do you develop a clear business case for your approach to sustainability? Winning Sustainability Strategies is designed to help you integrate sustainability into your strategy, so you can maintain your competitive edge.

The program equips you with a practical framework for identifying and evaluating the relative performance of sustainability programs. You will learn to use “vectoring” as a key strategic tool to develop your own sustainability plan, embed the UN Sustainable Development Goals into your company’s core strategy, and assess the impact of sustainability programs on competitiveness.

At the end of the program, you will not only have your fully developed sustainability plan for lasting change, but will also be equipped with applicable tools and insights on driving performance and innovation through a coherent sustainability strategy.

Enhance your understanding of how to embed the SDGs into your business strategy.

Learn about the vectoring model and its application as a key strategic tool.

Get familiar with the concept of materiality and its implications for your business.

Explore business opportunities arising from the circular economy.

Create a high-level action plan to implement your sustainability strategy.

You and your class

You are a business executive (including C-suite), strategy practitioner or sustainability professional, interested in the business case for sustainability and its strategic implications. Your work involves strategy development, driving sustainability innovation, or embedding the UN SDGs into the company’s core strategy. You are eager to acquire new skills, competencies and tools to develop or further enhance your capabilities for designing and executing successful sustainability programs.

Your class is individually put together through a selection process to ensure that you experience the most impactful learning with a truly diverse group of global peers. Your class will become a trusted resource, encourage your learning journey, and surprise you in many unanticipated beneficial ways both during and beyond your classroom experience.

The Winning Sustainability Strategies program has allowed me to rethink the way I support my clients in their journey towards stronger sustainability. I can now offer them an interesting methodology that allows them an intelligent and efficient transformation rather than heavy and unapplicable processes.

The program was an awesome experience. I took away so many things to implement at work, like understanding that organizations must now be purpose-driven, report on targets and progress, transform to a circular economy and have sustainability as a key pillar.
