sustHUB Programmes

We see a strong need for basic support and learning to help many leaders either starting or advancing their corporate sustainability journey. Many larger organisations are looking to derive more value from their sustainability strategy and goals. Our research however indicates that there are significant knowledge gaps and we have identified key topics presenting the greatest need.

Our programmes have been developed for board level, executive and senior leadership, as well as those tasked with managing and delivering on ESG and sustainability within their organisation. The sustainability engagement consists of leadership masterclass, bespoke client in-company training (in person, virtual or online eLearning). We also provide a white labelled learning engagement service where we deliver our content under your brand. The ultimate objective is to enable more informed decision making through driving awareness for leaders on ESG, Climate, Circular Economy, Biodiversity, Carbon Emissions and Sustainability actions and performance in their organisations.

The following are our key sustainability courses.

For instance, the course focuses on not just working out your carbon footprint but setting climate targets and decarbonisation approaches to reduce your emissionsCarbon footprinting is the starting point of a company’s journey to reducing their impact on global warming.
