Advanced Sustainability Programme (ASP)

From £1345
Professor Kenneth Amaeshi - Chair in Business and Sustainability - University of Edinburgh Business School (et al.)
Sustainability is a very dynamic and fast-paced field. This is further complicated by the Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) global challenges shaping and informing sustainability practices in different contexts. A recent fundamental change to the sustainability landscape is the global emphasis on meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Professionals in this space are required to make sense of these developments, and strategically reconcile the demands of sustainability with the quest for enhanced organisational performance.
