ACADEMIC COURSE IN SUSTAINABILITY MANAGEMENT

The topic of sustainability is shaping our future - privately and consequently for all companies!

The demands placed on corporate sustainability work by the law, customers and all other stakeholders can no longer be fulfilled by a single department in the company.

The "Academic Sustainability Management Course" gives you an overview of the legal requirements in the area of sustainability and shows you the opportunities of practising corporate sustainability.

Building on this, you will learn both the theoretical basis and the practical implementation for your company in the areas of sustainability controlling and reporting, sustainability communication and crisis management as well as procurement, production and facility management.
