Carbon Credits, ESG and the Epiconomy - Introduction

The course lecturer Patrizia Tomasi-Bensik is recognized by the UNCC (United Nations Climate Change) as an expert in CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) carbon credits.

Eco-Sustainability, including CSR (Corporate and Social Responsibility) and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) are standards that organizations, all over the globe, can no longer ignore. At the same time, opportunities in creating value out of the demand for eco-sustainable solutions need to be correctly appraised and explored, for they will define the future of any business in the next 20 years.

Carbon Credits, ESG and the Epiconomy

Introductory course about the Epiconomy

Planck E invites you to participate in an executive training course where you will learn how to manage the opportunities and risks in the Epiconomy and what this can represent for your organization.
