ESG Integration for Business Resilience: Sustainability Essentials for Executives
Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), a new EU legislation that will require large companies in the EU to report on their sustainability performance in their annual management reports. With their signature, the management is indicating their commitment to sustainability and responsible practices and acknowledging their responsibility to stakeholders and authorities to report on the company’s ESG performance.
Learn from experts what CSRD obligations entail for you as a business leader and how to master implementing ESG Strategy in your organisation, learn about financing opportunities and investments, and get valuable insight from companies that are already implementing ESG as part of their business strategy.
Course graduates will receive a certificate of completion confirmed by EY, the University of Economics and Business in Prague, and the British Chamber of Commerce. You will also receive confirmation of graduation on your LinkedIn profile.
