Managing Sustainability: Theory and Practice

Integrating sustainability in corporate decision-making, as well as professional education, has become not only an opportunity, but a necessity for businesses and professionals operating in every field. As investors, especially institutional investors (e.g. asset managers, pension funds etc.), are increasingly promoting sustainable products and therefore including only ESG-compliant stocks in their portfolios, or pushing companies to move to more sustainable solutions (through the so-called ESG engagement strategy), there is a need for companies and professionals to identify and implement new efficient solutions to integrate ESG concerns in their strategies and long-term goals. Instructors of this course include academics, practitioners and other experts from the field of sustainable finance.

The course aims at training professionals, corporate board members and executives on sustainable finance and sustainable management. The integration and development of new sustainability-related competences and skills is key to the strengthening of a stakeholder-oriented corporate decision-making. At the same time, the on-going dialogue between the academic and the corporate dimensions will be beneficial to both parties, as it will enable scientific research to better identify the most urgent and significant sustainability-related issues to be addressed in order to help companies to understand, implement, measure and evaluate a sustainable business strategy. Ultimately, this would undoubtedly impact on businesses’ practices, services and products, and translate into benefits for the entire society.
