Corporate Sustainability Programme
The Corporate Sustainability Programme is an online certificate programme which aims to provide current and Africa focused management knowledge in the area of corporate sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and responsible business. The programme is delivered online via LBS eLearn platform.
In the last two decades, there has been growing interest in the role that business plays in society. This has led to more businesses creating roles for corporate sustainability leads, corporate social responsibility officers, environmental and social risk management and managers, and so on. While these professionals are tasked with driving, promoting, and managing sustainability within their organisations, they often experience difficulties in delivering their objectives due to a knowledge gap and limited training for their specific roles. The programme provides a self-paced learning option for busy professionals to learn and understand the business case for sustainable development and better deliver on their jobs as sustainability professionals in their firms and/or organisations.
