Programme Overview
The current decade represents the last window of opportunity to secure mankind’s future, according to available scientific evidence. It is high time businesses across the globe woke up to the reality of climate change and its impact on human activities at micro, meso and macro levels. We might still be able to abate climate change if individual and collective behavioral changes are made and eco-friendly lifestyles are adopted. And if we don’t act immediately, not just humanity, but all life on planet earth is at risk of extinction.

Hence, it is critical for everyone to understand the current climate state and how businesses across the globe contribute to global warming and climate change. Organizations today can become benchmarks for sustainable practices by leveraging the current environmental, social, and governance (ESG) regulatory framework. In addition to fulfilling their climate responsibilities, they will gain competitive advantage as innovators and first movers. Therefore, practitioners are encouraged to see regulations not as obstacles to overcome, but rather as opportunities for business growth.

Programme Objective
During the program, executives will be given a chance to think about the urgency of adopting climate friendly practices in their businesses. Furthermore, the program covers how to navigate various environmental sustainability nuances and the existing ESG regulations. The program provides examples of companies that have integrated green practices into the culture of their organizations, designed greener products, and created ecofriendly processes and have set industry standards through the use of case studies from across industry verticals. Aside from providing the necessary tools and techniques, the program will also offer an in-depth understanding of how carbon footprints are calculated.

Programme Content

  • Current state of affairs related to climate change and the need for limiting global warming to 1.5 to 20 C.
  • How can individuals, businesses, communities, and governments help reduce the impact of climate change?
  • What is ESG and how can regulations play a role in changing the course of climate change?
  • How can organizations make use of ESG to achieve triple bottom line performance?
  • How to gain first mover advantages through greener products and processes?
  • How to set environmental targets and create roadmaps to achieve these targets?
  • How to compute, monitor and reduce carbon footprint of an organization?
  • How to bring about organizational commitment towards environmental sustainability?
  • What structural changes are necessary to bring about this commitment and associated results?

Key Benefits/Takeaways
As part of this programme, participants will gain a deeper understanding of climate change, its current trajectory, and its potential impact on business and society. The audience will also discover how different industries are leveraging current and upcoming environmental regulations to restructure their products and processes, thereby gaining competitive advantage. This case discussion will provide the participants with insights and understanding that will help them chart a course for their own organizations. Knowing and understanding ESG regulations and guidelines will help the participants navigate regulatory hurdles that their organizations may encounter. The participants will also learn appropriate tools and techniques to measure, monitor and reduce their organizational carbon footprint. The hands-on experience gained through the project component will also enable them to implement improvement initiatives in their own systems and processes. Lastly, the participants will learn how to create awareness, inspire employee commitment, and implement structural changes in their own organizations to alleviate climate change.

The pedagogy will include lectures, cases, videos, and group discussions designed to elicit engagement and deeper involvement of participants in the programme. Additionally, a group project will provide hands-on experience in calculating the carbon footprint of individuals and/or organizations.

Who should participate
Organizational founders, senior managers and functional heads who are able to influence decision making pertaining to ESG in an organization. We encourage organizations to have multiple executives from relevant departments attend this programme together. By doing this, equal knowledge and commitment will be developed among team members, which will make it easier to implement this change in their own organizations. With this objective in mind, a discount will be provided for participants who sign up for this program in teams of 3 or more.
