Sustainability for Business Success

About the course

Irish Times Training are delighted to partner with The Cube Low Carbon Centre of Excellence and Global Strategic Corporate Sustainability Ltd on this programme, where our panel of experts will help you understand the commitments your organisation needs to make in order to drive real change.

This programme is based on the 21st Century Leadership Model. It will be delivered in 7 topic-focussed Masterclasses of 2 hours & 30 minutes duration, led by industry expert speakers. Each session includes a Q&A in which the participants can ask questions and share their own expertise and experiences.

The programme is aimed at business managers and leaders who aspire to go beyond the traditional scope of their role, creating long-term value by taking into consideration how their organisation operates in the ecological, social and economic environment.

It can be expected that disruption – climate, technological, political and economic – will play a part in our future. 

While it is impossible to completely eliminate risk, 21st Century Board and business leaders will need to proactively mobilise strategies and plans to mitigate risk. This programme will guide participants in planning for the future using a scientific, triple bottom line model with three priorities: Profit, People and the Planet. 

During the programme, participants can submit their Sustainability Plan to the programme co-ordinators for review and expert feedback, before bringing it back to their business for implementation.
